Early morning run (11/07/2009).

I had made up my mind the day before that this was going to be a longer run. Where I would go was not decided. This is how it develped!

Getting up early on a Sunday and going out for a run when most other people are having a longer sleep in bed generally gives makes me quite a different view the day wihout even giving any consideration to the extent, distance or quality of the run. A long run which starts at 6.30am on a Sunday usually gives me such a positive start to the day that I am more likely to be able to cope with any of the events of the day.

During the run, and in addition to looking positively at the environment, I engaged in comment about issues of politics, warfare, troubles in the Middle and Far East (Afghanistan, Iran, Israel, Palestine, Lebanon, North Korea) were considered along with the former Northern Ireland conflict and issues of poverty, racism and the developing multicultural nature of the UK society.
