I love to run.

And never believe me if I tell you otherwise.

Ran my first meet at my home course today. 23:57 for a 5k, not bad, but not my best.

I complain about running way too much. I don't really know why. I dread practices, and I hate workouts. But I don't hate running. I love it more then any other sport I've ever done.

I love getting a good kick 100 or 200 meters before the finish. It feels like flying. I love the endorphin high you get after races, when everything is dizzy in just the right way. I love the way that spikes feel, because it makes your feet feel light and wonderful. I love running barefoot cool-downs, and I love it when the grass is cold.

I say that I hate to run, but I'm lying. I love to run. It's the most natural sport you could ever do. Its just you and the earth.

Go find yourself a grassy field and run barefoot in it. (I dare you.)

  1. Hi how are you?

    I was looking through your blog, and I found it interesting, and inspiring to me, so I thought why not leave you a comment.

    I too have a blog that I use out of Southern California here in San Diego.

    Mostly it is a collection of artistic expression, and I have many friends with the same interests, maybe you can become my friend, and follow, and I can also follow you, if that is okay.

    Well I hope to hear from you soon, and or read about you….LOL
