running myself into the ground…

I like to run. I do it for many reasons, but the one that gets me out the door in the morning is that lovely feeling when you feel like your feet are dancing over the dirt and rocks while the sun is beginning its ascent, sending golden rays through the trees, and you feel strong and alive and connected with the world around you. Sure, that does not always happen, but it happens often enough that the days of uncomfortable, sweaty, tired slogging are forgiven and forgotten.
