Imagine if you could run along this trail every day, all year. You would be in perfect shape, wouldn’t you? And you’d be perfectly happy, right? And you’d have no excuse for skipping a workout because you couldn’t shovel the car out of the driveway. Or the roads were closed because of an ice storm when it was -40C.But if that was the case, this view wouldn’t be as special. Today’s three mile run wouldn’t be as memorable. Because my time in this sweet, small, beachy town is ending. This week in fact. And summer is coming to a close. So today, I am thankful. For views like this. For being able to run at all. For dancing on a stage for a living. For summer breezes. For small victories. And simple happiness.
