Tonight, I put myself out there again for you, my true friends. All I wanted to do was run forever. Even on the treadmill I wanted to just keep going, another km, another minute, it’s okay I kept telling myself. In the end my sensibility got the best of me. Tonight is my rest night from running and I should be doing strength training; however, all I wanted to do was run. Run past work, run past social standards, run past the norms that I just don’t jive with. I’m an awkward person. I’m intelligent and great at what I do but I just don’t fit in anywhere in the business world… Nowhere I have found yet. I know it exists because I’ve found people who accept me, appreciate me, acknowledge my skills, and even love me. Tonight, I did not want to do any weights.
January 22, 2015: 3 km run
Albeit, that’s a small distance for Janathon and Earthathon, it was a fantastic 3 KMs of running. I wanted to go longer, much much much longer but my rational self kept saying, save it for tomorrow’s 7 km run, you don’t want to hurt yourself, it’s okay to stop.
