How far is five miles you ask? Well let me tell you. It’s from the bottom of my driveway to Paseo Del Norte.
Can you believe that? I can’t.
I also can’t believe I was up before the sun was. That’s just wrong on so many levels. People should not wake up before the sun wakes up. I have to say though, that the sunrise this morning was beyond spectacular. It was so amazing I’m tempted to figure out a way to run with my camera from now on. There were these huge storm clouds sprawling over the Sandias, and once the sun started creeping out it turned the clouds into a work of art. It started as a pale pink, then rose, hot pink, violet, lavender then a bright purple. I thought it was done after that and the clouds would turn gray, but instead they started turning gold, yellow, orange, copper. It was fantastic. Sadly though, I was running in the opposite direction of the view, so I had to keep turning around to see it.
I have a gripe about drivers in the morning, but I don’t feel like ruining my morning by complaining about them. Long rant short, drivers need to remember what they learned in elementary school and look BOTH ways when they get to a stop. I haven’t been hit yet, but I definitely get close enough to hit the car – only then do they realize some people actually run/walk/bike against the traffic. Silly people.
It’s cloudy outside today – I love it. Fall is coming 🙂
