This morning, I went for a 5K run at White Rock Lake. I started at 6:30am in the dark at a nice slow and steady pace. It was such a joy to watch the morning rise over the lake. I loved hearing the turtle doves, hoot owls, and loon-like birds start their morning chatter. Now that I'm over the January gunk, I'd like to start running 5K once a week in preparation for my 5K race at the end of March. I've never been a morning person, but running is something I'll definitely get up for. Today, I ran 3.1 miles in 38 minutes.
