Today’s run was the product of a quick text from my dad. After reading my blog from yesterday, he simply texted to remember to keep it simple. Reading between the lines (which is difficult to do in a short text message), I think it was his nice way of telling me not to over think things. Some runs are simply to keep your current condition, and they won’t reveal the meaning of life. Go out and run; go out and reach for your goal.
Today’s run easily fit into this concept. A short, quick run with little analysis and thought, just running. The run was 3.04 miles in 21:08. Every once in a while we need a quick reality check and I think today’s run was mine. No excuses, no worries about the temperature or wind, just pure enjoyment of the ability to run.
