The Fun In A Run

Well yesterday I dragged my feet through the morning because I knew 11 miles were ahead and as much as I love running, I was not looking forward to it.  Saturday rained and I was all too willing to trade days but I’m glad I did because it was a beautiful day yesterday.  I thought about how I might enjoy what was ahead more and well I thought about what my friend @BryantMcBride says and break it up the run into little bites.  How would I do this?  Why in @kellykkroberts fashion of course!  Taking pictures!  Now this has an element of laziness to it because truthfully it gave me 11 sure spots to rest for at least :15 seconds to catch my breath.  I hope that doesn’t wreck me for my race in two weeks.  Anyway here are the things that caught my attention each and every mile and broke up 11 miles into fun little bite sized pieces.
