Beautiful day! Bright blue skies, clean air and a great run w/ Jax after waking up at the crack of dawn, downing some coffee and watching the girls unwrap their Christmas presents. I can honestly say I really wasn't in the mood to change out of my cozy pajamas, nor step away from the cookies for breakfast, but once I was outside it was well worth it. Jax and I cruised along the quiet roads. The trail was too crunchy with ice and snow so it was a road running kind of morning. People were friendly waving as we ran by, talking about the beautiful day and some saying Merry Christmas.
