I love Running.
It wasn't until recently, though that I really began to do that. Sure, we'd hang out for awhile. I'd buy Running some clothes, gadgets, etc., for Running but we really never had that extra spark. I'd read about others that would miss running on their off days. Not me. I was pretty content on my off days. No pangs of loneliness. Nothing.
I'd like to tell you that there was a specific moment that I started to love Running. That'd make a great post. Lately, though, I can't wait to go out for a run. Long run? More time for me to run and see what we're made of. I think Running and I have a solid foundation. That is, unless injury or apathy sets in, and then "we'll need to talk."
Today marks the one year anniversary of Running Off at The Mind. It all started when I was listening to Phedipidations during a long run. Steve Runner was going on about how cathartic it was to blog about running. I thought I'd give it a try. I still thought it was ludicrous that people would want to know any of my mundane thoughts and observations.
Who woulda thunk it?
I'd like to thank everyone out there that's read and/or commented on the silly, mundane, embarrassing happenings that have gone on in my life this year. I try to make most of my posts about running, but sometimes life gets in the way and I have to vent or make a pithy observation. At the same time, I've enjoyed reading about so many great people that have the courage (foolishness?) to tell me about your runs. I enjoy all of them. I may not comment as much as I'd like, but I'm reading 'em!
All of you out there have given me tremendous motivation to go out there, get the miles in and fall in love with running.
Here's to another great year!
