This afternoon I had the great pleasure of running during the daylight hours, when the skies were fabulously rain-free, and I went exploring with a friend. Can it get any better?
Unfortunately, with moving, work being absolutely crazy, and business travel this past week, I did not make time to run for two whole weeks! I missed it!
This time away from home, and moving from a very familiar neighborhood into unexplored territory made me very nervous about running at dusk or in the early morning pre-dawn haze. I had so much more freedom in my old, familiar “home zone” this new space on sidewalks and around all these houses is intimidating. I really enjoyed my first experience out running with a buddy, conversing and looking around. I think I’ll learn to like this area, very much.
With any luck, in the future I will not let a little fear keep me from doing this thing that I love so much: Running.
