Before and After

Yesterday, I went for a morning run and took two pictures – one before the run and one after the run. These pictures can also be called just before sunrise and just after sunrise. I think they are both beautiful and thought I would share them. Happy Saturday and stay healthy!





I saw something cool… But, you’ll have to trust me

This morning, as I was on my regular 6:30am bike ride, I saw a gorgeous sunrise. The sun went from purple, to pink, to orange over the course of my ride. But, you know what? You’ll have to trust me. I didn’t stop to take a picture. I just rode and enjoyed the view. I was totally in the moment and it was really nice. 🙂

Sometimes I think you really just have to do that. Be in the moment. Whether it’s enjoying a gorgeous view or spending time with family/friends. I feel like we get so caught up in social media and posting the cool stuff in our lives, we forget to enjoy it. Or maybe we want to project a certain image to the world or to our friends.


Don’t get me wrong. I post my fair share of pretty pictures! Maybe more than my fair share. But! Every now and then… Just kick back and enjoy. With all of us dealing with more and more stress, I think you can benefit from enjoying a moment or a view. I am also a proponent of unplugging every now and then. I don’t have to answer every email immediately. I don’t have to respond to a Facebook post within a few minutes. I guess what I’m really trying to say (in a horribly roundabout way) is that it’s ok to occasionally be in “BRB kthxbai” mode. 🙂

Stay healthy!

I Love Running in the Morning

I have been doing all of my training in the mornings… Sometimes I am treated to a beautiful view. This morning, clouds were rolling by as rain was/is coming our way. I took this photo at the end of my run – I couldn’t resist because it was just so gorgeous. Made getting up early worth it.

Good Morning

Good Morning

I completed by run before the rain started. It’s raining now and it’s very exciting! We need any rain we can get here in California. 🙂 In the hopes of rain during our rainy season, I even bought a new Brooks jacket that is waterproof and windproof. I’m looking forward to giving it a trial!
