To Run…

Today was one of those runs that reminds you why you go running.

Early morning, off road, very foggy, as the sun came up. I only saw 3 people. They were all doing what I was doing.

We exchanged one word greetings as we passed, all that is required when runners of kindred spirit commune before the sun has begun to impact on the lives of most people.

Each of us knew why we were out here. We suspected we knew why the other was out here.

We run. Because we want to. Because we can.

And I’m thankful for it. I just sometimes need reminding. And today was that reminder.

Keep running everyone!

  1. There is something magical about a run in the fog. It seems to affect everyone you pass along the way as well. So jealous! It’s still in the 100’s here and summer just refuses to end.

  2. We run because we want to! Love it! That hits the nail on the head. Roll on summer, I ran in a tee shirt last night for the first time in ages. It was 14°C at 6pm, so much nicer than the freezing weather we’ve been having.

  3. I love those runs. I need one soon just as a reminder. Yours will do. Thanks!
