Night Run

I just removed an item from my guilt list.

I don't know what it is about Wednesdays, but I just have a LOT of trouble getting up for my morning workout. This morning makes week number 3.
To relieve some of the anxiety that I always feel about this, I did a little run tonight. I think I may permanently change my routine to evening workouts on Wednesdays.

I haven't ran outside in a while. I find it much more relaxing than running on a treadmill.
I like the way I feel at the end, walking the streets of my neighborhood, cooling down. I set my iPod to something very soft and soothing. The endorphins are kicking in and I feel no pain.
I look up into the night sky and see the stars. There are so many... even in the city, I can still see so many. The vastness of it all makes me feel small and... I dunno, clean? Like nothing I have ever done, or will ever do, be it good or bad, will affect this universe.
I am a tiny part of the whole.

...and I must be really tired.
