I got up and ran twelve miles again this morning. it's just so rare that I get a morning without working these days, I can't bear to waste the sunrise.
my feet were hurting before I even put my running shoes on, but I told myself to just run a little, and a little turned into a lot.
I'm telling you, there's nothing special about me being about to run nine or twelve miles in one go; I just have more time on my hands than some people.
went straight from running to the farmer's market, because I can't bear to show up too late and miss out on the good stuff.
kale, peaches, mint, baby watermelons, and an oregano plant were all purchased. pictures were taken. it was super busy down there, and I spotted a pug I wanted to kidnap but couldn't manage to even get his picture.
and then, rest. it takes everything in me to make myself sit down sometimes.
my reason was to stretch out a good bit, and I guess I only did it because I ran so much.
but just sitting down, thinking, reading, praying. so good.
I watched a couple of these yoga videos on youtube to help me with my hips and things. polly is great and really down to earth [here's her blog, too]. usually I just watch what she does, pause the video and hang out in that pose for a good while. and today I read 2 peter and 1 john. refreshing like nothing else.
thomas is my neighbor now, and it's wonderful. we get to see each other pretty much daily.
he came over for a bit and ate a watermelon.
I'm making some pizza for our dinner tonight, and just relaxing.
goodness, it's so nice to rest.
