My reward

Every time I put in the effort to go out for a run I'm rewarded in some way. Today I was doing mile repeats on the track in the gathering darkness, slower than I had hoped (averaging 11:02 min/mile, so it really only qualifies as a tempo run).

It got very dark and cold out there.

But on my very final lap around the track, I was treated to the sight of a spectacularly beautiful enormous full moon rising through the treetops.

That is why I love finding beautiful places to run and ride. The beauty of the surroundings takes me away from the pain and monotony of training.

Saw it last night driving my son to his C.A.P. meeting.
It was wonderful wasn't it...
