Running


My daughter (and son) have been running lately - its got me thinking, I should be running again too. When I was younger, I ran most days, addicted to the adrenaline. What is it, about something which can be tough, especially when you haven't done it for a while, that makes it actually exhilirating? For one thing, its not tied to an indoor setting, like inside a gym. Yesterday morning, when we went for a run, it was about 7am, but the moon was still up in the sky. Running reminds me of my humanity, seeing trees, the river, even other people. Breathing cool air and embracing the earth. Yes, I think there is something mysteriously good about it. Running.
