While running, I sometimes reflect on the velvety clouds or focus on the sounds of birds chirping or the cars flowing by, and today I saw magnolia blossoms reminding me of Tennessee. During the last mile of today's run, I was able to work through some arguments for a paper I'm writing. Some old ideas came back to me--a bit sharper than before. And a few new ideas popped up.
It was a gorgeous day to run--my legs felt awesome, and my brain got a workout, too!
