I Am A Runner

I used some credit hours to knock off of work a bit early today.  I am planning to go see the new “Star Wars” movie with my daughter (Sarah), so I wanted to get home and get my jog out of the way.  The jog was noon-“ish”.  A bright, clear, cloudless day.  Mid-60’s temperature, but with a cold, stiff breeze blowing.  It wasn’t constant, but it was more steady than intermittent.  It was really nice to get out in the mid-day sun to just see the brightness of the world.  I’m so used to the fluorescent lighting of work, it seems strange to see things in natural (bright) light.
Day 5.  The jog was same old-same old; 13 laps; 3.25 miles in 70 minutes.  I actually timed it today.  The time is even slower than it used to be, but that’s the way it goes when you’re starting back up.  The times will drop and the distance will increase before all is said and done.  So, now that my curiosity is satisfied, I don’t have to time myself again for a month or so.  By then I’ll be used to the activity and time, and distance will be more of a consideration.   Until then, it’s just one foot after the other…

The rainbow is more beautiful than the pot at the end of it; because the rainbow is now.  And the pot never turns out to be quite what I expected.
