In places, running on November 20, 2011 at 2:56 pm

Went on my second run in three days just now; both were slow and included many walking intervals while I try to get back in the groove after giving my knee a break for several weeks.

Friday’s run was especially perfect — in that the day was beautiful, temperatures were cold/cool, my knees hung in there, and cerebrally/psyche-wise, it was glorious.

In my life in general at the moment, there is a vat of stress at hand that is big enough to drown in, so running through those beautiful woods is a respite I’m more grateful for than ever.

Even without outside stress, I feel intensely grateful to have reached this point in my life with good health and the ability to go out and feel my heart pumping and my legs and lungs getting stronger.
