Over the weekend, the LA marathon occurred. Like last year, I was glued to the television watching the coverage. While watching the elite runners, Anna says to me “they look like runner, they look like they are ‘running’ all i look like is jogging”. Then asked “why don’t you look like that?” “Don’t you want to get better?”
I explained that running is much more to me that physical exercise. It is therapeutic. It is my escape from all of the things i may need to escape from that moment.
I was reading a story about a man who physically carried another runner across the finish line at Rock and Roll Washington over the weekend. In the comments section under the article I saw this:
“Running is more than running. It’s a way of life. Until you are one, fast or slow, short or long distances, will you ever truly realize and understand all the facets of your life that it touches.”
I was really touched by this. I don’t think I could have put it better.
That is a very good question. Since December I have been on the road quite a bit. I have been back and forth to our offices in Plano (Texas) and Chandler (Arizona). When I have been home I have been entrenched in work as well.
Well, the good news is that the migration project I have been working on is finally over. I have slowly but surely getting back into old routines, which I will discuss further in future posts.
I have missed writing, I really really have. I just hope you have missed reading.
