Cycling and running in the mist

Early morning mist in August

Have you noticed we've been having some very beautiful early morning mists lately?  I think this has happened in many parts of England.  I just wanted to highlight these mornings as being ideal for getting out there, on two feet or on two wheels.

It is very tempting for me to peer out of the window and see a grey "nothingness" with everything looking cold and grey - then it's all too easy to slide back under the duvet.  And yet these can be the very mornings when the mists suddenly start to lift with the warmth of the rising morning sun.  I know it's a matter of taste but I think there's a real beauty to these mornings and can go for miles and miles without realising it.  Even over roads or trails that are well known to me, there is a new quality to them that makes them appear completely new to me.

If you visit my blog often you may have noticed I prefer to run, or perhaps cycle, early in the day.  This time of day is very special for me.  Sometimes they're times of real inspiration and magic in feeling like the only person awake and wonder in the day ahead.  These misty mornings have simply added to that, deepening an already wonderful experience.
