August Highlights

August 2019 Overview

Two hundred forty-three consecutive sunrises. Or more simply, eight months.

The first sunrise of August was at 6:30. This morning, the sun rose at 7:08. By the time I got to Babycakes to write this it was already 7:40. I almost can’t fathom it and where this project has come, and by project I mean life.

On the most rushed days of this project, I’m out the door fifteen minutes before sunrise. With that in mind, April 8 is the last time I was out the door after 7AM, 146 days ago. The last time I set an alarm after 7AM was probably about March 31, 154 days ago.

Others may certainly read this and think, “So what?” Which is entirely fair. But for me, this is a first. Even during times where I was more of a morning person, or during high school when I had to get up early, there were weekends where I would certainly sleep in.

What more could one do daily over the course of eight months? Mostly I need to get more exercise and eat more vegeteables.

I’m excited. I feel accomplished. But I have four months to go to complete this goal. Sunrises being after 7AM is just a small milestone.

Songs of August

Music has played a large role in this year's journey. These are the songs that were the theme of August, the ones that were playing in my car stereo on the way to sunrise, in my headphones while editing photos, and the ones being shared with those closeest to me. Check out the entire playlist.

I wish I was swimming. Yeah, really.

August Sunrise Locations

Fuel more Sunrises

There is plenty more content to come from Year of the Sunrise I, II, III and ...IV(?). Add a weekly or monthly cup of coffee to fuel more sunrise content. Or, add monthly or quarterly tank of gas to fuel more sunrise road trips, which is how it all began.
