I'm thankful for early summer mornings. You know, when you get up for a run and it's already bright out because the days are long. The weather is perfect, maybe 70ish, even though it'll hit 90 later. There's just something so peaceful about being up at that hour with the dew still glistening on the grass, knowing that the majority of people are still fast asleep.
You know you have a million things going on in your life and you know it's going to be a busy day at work, but for that precious hour, you are calm. You are serene. Your mind is clear and you think with a clarity that only comes at this special hour of the day. You have the chance to meditate, think about all the things you're thankful for (even if you forget them for your blog a few months later) and think about how beautiful the day is. How amazing your body feels running along the pavement and how you feel like you could run forver. This is when you are able to be one with yourself before the heat of the day and the heat of your life start to feel oppressive.
