My Rooster Trainer and Sunrise Sprints in Lithuania

Today's workout will stay in my memory.

I woke up early, as per usual, did some reading, writing, and big thinking, and then left my cabin (remember, I'm in the countryside of Lithuania) and went down to the recreation area for sprints.

As I did, a rooster from a nearby farm crowed several times and the sun rose just over the horizon.

It was peaceful.

Except for the annoying flies and the demanding sprints!

Good times.

Today we say our goodbyes to the 50 new friends that we made over the weekend. They will all begin their journeys back home, some close (Latvia) while others at the end of the world (Zimbabwe, Australia, Taiwan, and more).

I'll be traveling with a group to Split, Croatia, but tonight we have an overnight stay in Helsinki on the way. There won't be time to explore as our flight arrives late and leaves early tomorrow for Dubrovnik. From there, we rent a car and explore the big D for the day, and then take the relatively short (230km) drive up to Split on the Dalmatian Coast. We have a big house rented with a gym and a cook for the week. I'll spend three nights there, then I'll start my own journey towards home.

Make your day memorable.
