Thankful Thursday: Running is a Gift
I had originally intended on making this post part of the “Wordless Wednesday” theme that is popular among my fellow bloggers but I felt that these photos deserved a bit of explanation instead of just dumping them into a post.
Every day I get to run, I am thankful. Running is my therapy. Running is my reprieve. Running makes me take the time to stop and notice my surroundings instead of just passing them by. Every sunrise I get to see reminds me of the renewal of each day and all the possibilities and beauty that it holds.
With that in mind, I want to share with you my collection of sunrise pictures that I have been lucky enough to take and witness over the last few months.
These pictures mean so much more to me than just a snap of the rising sun on the run. Not only are they the dawning of a new day in the literal sense but each time I step foot out the door and get to witness this ball of fire illuminate the roads I run, I am reminded that running is a gift. Tomorrow is never promised and I am grateful for each day that I can run because I know there will come a day when I can’t.
QOTD: Do you prefer to run in the morning or at night?
