It was a Beautiful Day

A pretty good day….a pretty good two days…….

Still out there on my own, but every day, getting stronger every day and enjoying every minute of it…

I love this…..this stuff, this is why I do what I do…to have fun!…I really spend a lot of time trying to get new runners into that part of this….it is what’s kept me at this for almost 30 years…the fun, if it wasn’t fun, why on earth would you do anything?….it’s gotta give you joy!

I’m almost done yet another virtual clinic, getting ready for tomorrow morning’s Zoom meet, and well, this is where this is what it comes down to…just getting out, outside – I’ve never had the same feeling with a treadmill or an indoor track run……doesn’t matter, the middle of winter, a rainy day on the west coast, unbearable heat, just getting out, making up a route as I go along….a vague idea of the distance, whether it was a speed or a hill repeat day…….it’s just running

okay some days it’s me in the gym, rolling the roads on a bike, or in a pool……but doing something, anything, living, and not watching someone else on TV

I wish I new the secret beyond that…..why does it feel so good to feel so sore?……..because, at the end of the day, it just feels like living…..and lovin’ every minute of it..

You have to want to, not have to….that’s all it is really isn’t it? Not much of a secret, really…but how do you share that?

Sure ran fast, or run far if you want to, figure out the way, then work on the how….or learn how to play more than one chord and play a symphony…..

Tomorrow, a rest day, a chance to catch up on things I needed to do during the week…….catching up.

And writing, walking, and I guess it’s my turn to make dinner……and be a dad and a husband, not just a runner, I guess

and yeah, maybe it’s time to shave….
