Coming and Going

I went for a run this morning.

I got to see the world coming. People were getting in to their cars to start their day with a fresh cup of coffee, having just said goodbye to their loved ones. 
I got to witness the beginning of the day. When there hasn't yet been time to be jaded by the events of the hours to come.
I got to come home with a sense of accomplishment. That if nothing else happens today, I made a good choice this morning.

I normally run at night.
I watch the world going. People are rushing to get home to their families.
I watch the sun go down. When people are tired, and weary, and ready to relax after a long day.
I come home with a sense of accomplishment. That despite everything that has happened that day, I made a good choice.

I love this's almost poetic Turtle. I too workout in the evenings because it's most convenient for me. But I miss those days when I used to workout in the mornings. I especially miss seeing the beauty of a morning sunrise.

I wanted to let you know that I've given you an award...come by sometime and pick it up.
