Clearly, she and I, we're not close.
Heat. Cold. Snow. Rain. Wind. Whatever. It's all a part of the run.
I was talking with Marino about the "Why" of running. We've both trained for marathons, done the drill, held to our training program, chugged the miles.
In that mode, a run is a task.
- Take out the trash.
- Drive to work.
- Put a coversheet on your TPS report.
- Run 5 miles at 7:45 pace.
- Pick up milk and eggs.
I've got enough tasks in my day already.
No, for me, running isn't a task.
Running is a series of adventures. Every run is an experience, a mystery, and an opportunity.
And every run has a promise.
A promise that when you finish, you will be ever so slightly different, better, than you were when you started.
I'm certainly not going to let a little heat keep me from that.
Numbers: 4.3 miles on trails.
