Peacefulness In The Dawn


This morning’s Boot Camp class on the National Mall was a surprisingly warm day for early January.  It was around 47 degrees according to my car’s temperature gauge when I arrived and some folks were shedding layers partway through the workout.  A stark difference from Tuesday when my fingers felt frozen beneath my gloves.

Today’s workout focused primarily on upper body so we did a lot of push ups and triceps push ups and even a relay race at the end where we had to run up the hill carrying a 10 pound medicine ball.

Good news is that I was not as tired towards the end of the day as I was on the previous ones.  And although I’m still very sore, I think my body is beginning to adapt to this new style or working out and the early mornings.  I’m so glad tomorrow is Friday, though!

I so wanted to take a photo while outside today.  The sky behind the Washington monument was really unique standing there majestically with the background of the moonlight and very early sun that was starting to peek through the dark sky  and clouds. Since I did not have my camera with me to capture the moment, I took a photo on my drive home to show the pretty sky about thirty minutes later.  There is nothing better than having your workout done when the sun is just coming out.  In my opinion, the most peaceful time of the day. early morning sky January 2013

About mileoneandcounting

I'm a young professional living in the Washington, DC area. Since moving here in 2007 I have honed a passion for running and fitness. Growing up I played soccer and softball (and tested track & field for one year). After college I ran a few 5K races, but running was really only a means to staying in shape for me. Never in my wildest imagination had I thought I'd ever run a marathon, let alone three. Nor did I think I'd get the running bug after doing so, but I'll admit I'm hooked! Over the years my blog has grown into so much more than a running blog though. Sometimes I have deep thoughts. Other times I'm simply sharing a training story or a review of a product. Here's the place where you'll learn about me through my many adventures--even I enjoy going back to re-read some posts from time to time. I've also been able to hone my love for health and wellness through my business called IDLife which stands for Individually Designed Life. I'd love to help inspire you to live your best life yet so please don't hesitate to reach out to me and may my words resonate with you. See you on the trails...
