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. I felt great. I run because it makes me feel good, not just physically but mentally. It’s a break from life, where I can get lost in my thoughts or whatever audiobook or podcast I’m listening to. It motivates me.

Often I see things I would never notice if I was driving by. I’ll stop and take photos. Many of those photos become paintings. Here are a few:

  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’m with you on the running – direct contact with the environment, rain or shine. You can’t beat it.

  4. 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!
