Day 16 Just Because

Last night, cool breezes pushed back the heat and humidity, and we awoke to a beautiful blue day.  I took advantage of a trip again to Evanston and ran along the lake.  Last week, there was a day on that trail that the greyness of the sky and lake so blended together that there was no distinction between the two.   It appeared that a boat was cutting across the sky.  Today, the sky was the bluest of blues, and the lake was iced in silver.  “This is the day that the LORD has made.  Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”  (Psalm 118.24)  It was THAT good.

Even if I wasn’t training, I would have run today.  Just because days like this should NEVER be wasted.
