Last of the sunrises

For the past 18 months I have been running with the Early Birds branch of our running club. We meet twice a week at 6am for a 5/6K run. We are a mixed bunch of speeds and abilities and it is simply the best way to start the day. During the summer we get up at 5:30am in the light, run in the light and get home in the light. Spring and Autumn give us stunning sun-rises. Winter is a slog, getting up, running and then getting home in the dark. One thing we know, though, is that even though it is SO SO hard to haul yourself out of bed in the cold and dark, you never regret it. Not ever. Even in the rain or frost, it sets you up for the day.

The clocks going back at the weekend has given the Early Birds a bit of a reprieve, and this morning we were treated to a sunrise again. By the end of next month we will probably not be seeing another and then that will be it until the end of the winter.

What is NOT to LOVE about scenes like this? So worth getting up for
