It took everything in me to get out of the bed Saturday morning in the midst of the sprinkling rain, little sleep and a mild hangover. Yet as my boyfriend reminded me at the foot of the bed, ‘Hey, you committed to it, get up, let’s go’. He was right and I was up.
And, we ran. My sweet little family of three ran a Christmas 10K together.
After the race, I came home and plopped on the couch and watched Christmas movies with my sweet runner of a dog all afternoon. In the midst of watching the show and a well-deserved nap, I drained my phone battery as I kept going through my photos from the run. I would click one picture, then the next. Zoom in here, smile there. Crop this, instagram that.
And in that moment, I knew my joy.
What I know to be joy is: I love finish lines with my boyfriend, hiking in the mountains, goals conversations over coffee, a ride on a Vespa scooter, a heart opening yoga flow, and red wine + laughter.
I say, know your joy. LOVE the pictures that capture your life!
And always know, you have to get out of bed to be in them!
