Day 197 - Sunrise
Thought of the day: Today I did an early morning run with a few neighbors and friends. It's certainly unusual for me to get up this early so I took this precious opportunity to snap a few photos. Boulder faces a wide open eastern plain so we can count on a glorious sunrise pretty much every morning as rainy or overcast days are few and far between in Boulder. It's great for early risers but, unfortunately, doesn't do much good for night owls like me. I've considered and even attempted, at least for a few times since I moved here, to change my sleep routine so I can catch the first lights of the dawn and do something meditative before everybody wakes up. Regrettable, my biological clock wasn't ready to cooperate yet so I inevitably gave up after trying for a few days. Getting up early to run, on the other hand, is something different. The outdoor air and movement wake me up and get me an extra bounce for the rest of the day. Things that I have done and don't regret afterward are usually good things for me. Running at the crack of dawn is one of those things - it's good for me, and I will keep doing it as long as my body can keep up.
