The weather has been so humid and hot! I haven’t felt like running, but I made myself go yesterday. Afterwards I was so glad I went.

  1. Beautiful pics, Eileen! Our lives can get so busy, but we have to find time to stop and smell the roses and just be aware of the beauty that often goes unnoticed… Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  2. WOWZA! So enjoyed your beautiful photos! I used to enjoy running too! Then I got arthritis in my hips. Thanks for letting me tag along on your run! 😊😊😊

  3. I hate running…HATE, but if I was being chased I could run, slowly. haha….My escape is biking so totally understand the mental need and I never regret it….even if it is a bit of a struggle to get motivated to get out there. Good for you and thanks for sharing!
