Beautiful Lake Run

This morning when my alarm went off at 5:30 a.m., I didn’t even hit snooze.  I turned the alarm off and rolled over, planning on sleeping for another hour.  I was exhausted and didn’t want to run.

But then I remembered that I have plans for tonight and I needed to get a workout in this morning, so I pulled myself out of bed to go for a run.  I’m so glad I did!

Yesterday was a long day in the legal world and a run was exactly what I needed.  I love running in the city in the morning because it’s so peaceful; the only people out are other runners.

I ran down to the lake and it was absolutely gorgeous.  I didn’t run with my camera, so this is the only picture I have (I took this walking Milo a few months ago):

Beautiful Milwaukee

This is the top of the hill, which I ran down to run right along the lake.  It was beyond beautiful along the lake — the boats were in the marina, the skyline was amazing, and I ran by the Art Museum, which of course, made me think of getting to marry my best friend in a little over a year.

I'm getting married here!










This run was exactly what I needed and reminded me why I love running so much.  The only thing that would have made it better would be if I had James with me.

I ended up getting in 5 miles in just under 50 minutes, which was perfectly fine with me.

Such a great way to start the day, I’m so thankful that I live in this beautiful city and have the ability to run through it.

Well, time to get ready for work.  I am going with Staci to see Anthony Jeselnik tonight, so I’m really excited!

I get to enjoy his comedy stylings tonight













Have a wonderful day everyone!!
