A Pleasent Loneliness

  Sometimes you just get tired and want to unload on someone or about something! I've discovered over the years that it's best to impose self-control during those times! I always live to regret what I might say or do, yet perhaps sometimes it's necessary to at least try to tell your side! This is one reason I so love my time on the roads. To me running is private. It is a sweet and pleasant loneliness. A time to unload and reload! A time to search and regroup, to test and prove. I believe running is as natural to us as any other aspect of our existence. Man I'm thankful I am able to hit the roads.
  Our hottest days yet are upon us so I was out by 7am this morning. I did two miles warm-up then 11X175m hills. All reps were under one minute and I recovered better than last week. I need to fit five days into three this week! Have you ever had to do that? Leadership conference Thurs&Fri....(still might sneak in a round of golf). Peace!!

My running time is my alone time as well. I think a lot and do a lot of problem solving on my morning runs.

running is like this for me too - time for me, time to be alone with my thoughts, or just time to zone out. it's a great release! hope you are able to golf this weekend!

Tengo Hambre!

    Man I got hungry while I was running today! I guess I forgot to take in enough calories! It cost me the last couple of miles some disco...
