I have had the BIGGEST running itch lately. Since I’ve started my “cheat runs” I have been craving it BIG time! I’m even making mental notes about songs to add to my running playlists. I saw this post from Distant Runners and it really hit a chord:
I used this quote/scenario in my dad’s eulogy. The Saturday before he died, I was visiting with him at the hospital after a long run. He asked me how far I went that day. When I told him I did 16 miles, he shook his head and said “How do you DO that?!”. I just grinned and said “one foot in front of the other” because I’m a smarty pants. Little did I know I would literally be utilizing that symbolism in real life and not just in “run life”…which is a lot more fun, pleasant, and relaxing.
