Little Things

Sometimes it seems like we just have too much drama in our lives.  It can be from external forces (work, family, etc.).  It can be internally produced (procrastination, health, ego, et al).  And, too often we get to drawn into the all the crap and forget to appreciate and enjoy the little things.

This morning, I had one of those days to appreciate.  Met with one of my former HS runners for a nice a.m. run.  Took off from his house and ran east towards Paradise.  Had the Clark Fork River running along side us.  Mountains in every direction.  Cooling breeze on the way back in.  Saw deer, osprey, geese, ducks and a wide variety of other birds. 

We did a nice 6 at around 7:15 pace.  Swapped some stories.  Told some jokes.  Passed some gas.  All the things that make for a good run.

Thinking about it, what more could a guy ask for on a Sunday morning than a nice visit to the Church of the Blue Dome????

So all my friends out there - remember.  Take some time to enjoy the day and appreciate the good times.

See you on the roads, tracks and trails.
