Uplift from sunrise

This morning was supposed to be a day off, but yesterday ended up run free, so I got up out of bed begrudgingly for an hour and a half run. I was immediately rewarded with a spectacular sunrise. My mood, pace, route, everything changed when I saw the blazing star rise. My chest lifted higher […]
