It continued raining for about 30 minutes, but then suddenly, as if by devine intervention, the clouds parted and I was greeted with sunshine and glorious, cool yet bright sunshiney weather. I ran into the conservation area which was bursting with fall colour. It was breathtaking, water glistened on the leaves reflecting colour, pine needles looked like glass, and the air was fresh and clean. My mood was elevated and I glided along.
Here is a bridge I run over:
I ended up having a great long run with a great pace, making me feel energized and ready to for my next marathon. Just the motivation I needed!
I LOVE fall running!
