Today I wanted to run forever

and I was so glad to have that feeling back.

I didn't have time nor did I want to run last week. I was flat out overwhelmed and overstressed. Leading to a good case of the blues. When we went to the lake on Saturday I couldn't get in the zone.

But today...when I went out...I didn't want to turn back. I wanted to run forever...far away and not come back to my own head.

Sometimes you get in such a zone, such a fog, you can't think about anything. My breathing wasn't at all labored. My body felt good. And my mind...was gone. I wasn't thinking about all the hurt I saw last week. My heart lifted for the first time in a week.

THIS is why I love running.
