Wake up, brush your teeth, run a 5 k.

I am incredibly fortunate to live near the University of Toronto campus. With its ample green space and stately architecture, a tour around the grounds can be a calming and nurturing activity.

That is why I have decided to spend every weekday morning running around it. During school, J and I were very good at waking up early each morning and running for an hour. I found that the exercise really boosted my mood and had me sleeping like a baby every night. Exercise is a great way to reduce stress and helps the body expel toxins at a faster rate.

I have made myself a personal goal of running 5 k every morning before work/school until the weather gets too cool to do so. This could be in late November, judging from the last year in Toronto. Another pleasant observation; I seem to have more stamina during exercise ever since I increased the amount of raw food in my diet! Athletes, take note.

Happy running!
