I went for a run tonight for the first time in ages. It was actually the first time since we moved to California over a year ago. I walk everywhere and workout pretty often, but I am not a runner. At least, I have always told myself that. I have been following Angela’s at Oh She Glows posts for her August Challenge this month, and it has been inspiring. She is so open about working through fear. What I am afraid of? It made me feel that I should just go out and run tonight, and I ran further than I thought I could.
Of course, I still stop and take pictures because somethings simply can’t be helped.
Crazy tall sunflowers and lemon trees for example…
…and white flowers at dusk stop me in my tracks. I am becoming fairly certain that I will never tire of taking pictures of palm trees regardless of how long we live here. This photogenic cluster was a good excuse to just hit pause and feel grateful for my much improved health and Sunday afternoons.
