Welcome to my running blog!

28 November, 2009

We are born alone, we die alone, and for the most part we, as runners, leave a single track on the beach of life. And yet (to further mangle that quote), for that momentary illusion of being not alone we reach out to continue a conversation — which on the trails rarely goes above and beyond the quotidian — with those also determined to run come hell or, more often around here, high water.

It’s not always easy, though. It doesn’t matter how many hundreds of times I’ve proved to myself that the way I feel having run is of itself  reward enough, there is still the temptation to stay in and stay dry, to do something else. I do have other interests! This blog is another facet of my running life. I visit other runner’s blogs to find inspiration and remind myself of my own running goals. And now I write my own to relate to others my own experience, and to know that there comes a time when I must post, and a time when I must race.

Here we go then!
