Because its a necessary part of the training plan for an upcoming race?
Because you love feeling the wind at your back and sun kissing your face?
Because it clears your head and acts as your therapy?
Because the sound of your feet hitting the pavement is so primal and natural?
CB and I ran 10.4 miles along the lakefront and took it easy. (his first run in a while and my longest since mid February because of the hip flexor injury)
It was glorious.
We enjoyed our time together and had so much fun taking in the stunning weather and scenery. The sun on my face, the wind in my hair, the flowers in bloom- all so beautiful this Easter morning.
Being out there with my pup reinforced my My running mantra and made me appreciate every step and breath. We were garminless, and didn't care about our time.
After this run, I'm feeling invigorated and rejuvenated towards life and running- ready to tackle anything that comes my way.
It was a soul cleansing run.
