Feeling a little down and inspired -- all at the same time.  Watched a documentary today called Spirit of the Marathon.  Wow.  All types of people run, big ones, small ones, tall ones, short ones.  So that means I can, too!  And I think I will.
So much training and so much time.  I want to train but I have very little time.  This morning I got up at 6.  Rolled out of bed, walked into the kitchen, felt the chill of the autumn morning and turned tail.  Back to my bed.  But it took all of five minutes before I was back out of bed and in the kitchen drumming up some breakfast.  The burn of the run is too tempting to resist.  Plus, I'm training myself to push past my mental blocks.  Push past what my mind says is just "too hard".  Please.  I totally made myself breakfast and an hour later shot out to pound the pavement.

One egg, a piece of toast and a spoon full of peanut butter. Breakfast of champions.  For sure.
I am a hearty, hearty breakfast eater so I was a little nervous at how my body would react to such a poor excuse for my morning fuel.  I felt great.  It held me all the way through until lunch time.  6:15am until 1pm.  That is pretty good for this insatiable eater.  And I ran five miles.

Oh, and I leave you all with a photo of a field that inspires my jog in the early or the late evening hours(when ever I'm lucky enough to get my run).  The end of my street overlooks this.
Beautiful fall colors this time of year...
