The woods end, and there is an arch in the trees where the path heads into the meadow.
As I came through that today, the sun was just coming up over the horizon. The grass was dark green in the shadows and golden-tipped in the sun. The trees across the meadow formed a fence of leafy sentinels in silhouette above which the sun was just climbing. And a solitary crane stood, slender and motionless just off the path I had to run.
Sweetie says I'm in a better mood since I started exercising every day. Who wouldn't be?
Today's workout: Running, outside -- 24 minutes, start to finish.
Latest Weight: 254.
Today's song to pump your fist in the air to when you hear it: Crunchy Granola Suite, by Neil Diamond.
Here's an actual running tip: When you run, look up, not down. When you look up you increase your blood flow in such a way as to elevate your mood. Whenever I walk or run, I look up.
Also: when I finish a run, I raise my arms in the victory V, like Rocky, or Richard Nixon. Probably I should do it more like Rocky.
