Weekly Photo Challenge: Good Morning!

Morning in my heart begins at sunrise.  So technically I felt I awoke in the middle of the night, 4:30 am.  My husband has ALS, so early morning care takes about an hour.  And then there’s Winston, my dog, who hates the dark, doesn’t want to run, but doesn’t want me to leave him behind.  I literally have to sneak out of the house, usually a different door from the previous day.  I was finally able to sneak out at 5:30 am.  I had a 13 mile run planned.  I actually like running in the dark…because I love watching the night turn into dawn.  Every few minutes it gets a little lighter out.  Pink begins to paint the horizon, then splashes of red, hot pink, orange, and blue are splashed on the canvas.  Its as if a painter is creating a rare masterpiece layer by layer until voila..there it is.  I had just moments to capture it, for as quick as it is painted, it is even more quickly erased.  I don’t run with my canon, I wish I could. If anyone has perfected running with a camera, please let me know how.  These Good Morning shots were captured with my iPhone.  This was taken at Mile 9. This is my Good Morning Mile 9 Sunrise!  Good Morning Everyone!

    As I was reading your ‘good morning’ note I began to imagine what it must look like. Beautiful……

    Beautiful sunrise shots. I’m exhausted just reading the time you get up and the miles you run in the a.m. Egad that’s amazing.

      Thank you! Believe it or not, I have more energy when I run through out the day, than when I don’t. The hard part is finding time for training for Boston, and photographing too…worked out today well though!

      Yes! I’m very excited! Waking up early to train isn’t the easiest! It would help if my training partner, Winston liked to run in the dark 🙂

      Yes! Very excited to be running Boston in April.

      I am in training right now. About 8 miles a day, with a long run on the weekend, this weekend 15 miles.

      Have a great day,
