May I just say that after less than 4 hours of sleep... I decided to go out for a nice little albeit cold run. And it felt wonderful! Oh I struggled and needed to walk a few times, but it felt good. Sooooo good.
So I am bringing back the simple joys of running.
Simple joys of running, December 21st edition:
Feeling the crunch of salt covered snow beneath your feet
Feeling so alive as you are aware of every single breathe you take.. you feel it sear your lungs and you see it cloud out from your mouth. Your body is a machine and you see it in action on a level only visible in winter.
Seeing the tracks of those a kin to you. We are a special family of people who in our solo treks leave a welcome and a wave in the path we leave behind us.
