I went for a run today and came very close to a personal record for 5K/3.1m, but I stopped at 3.01 miles rather than finishing the last 9/10 of a mile. I concentrated in my training and ran negative splits for each mile finishing at 30.34 which is just a bit slower than my all time PR for a 5K. It was still relatively quiet and there was a heavy frost on the ground. The morning sunlight reflecting off the frost was beautiful.
I’m grateful to be strong. I’m grateful to be faster than I was before. I’m grateful that I can recognize the beauty of a frosty morning. And I was very grateful for a hot cup of coffee after my run.
