I ran tonight. It was the first time since the marathon. I don't run until my soreness is gone. And that was on Saturday, but then life got really busy. So the planned runs over the weekend didn't materialize. Today I had a hard time getting myself out the door. It wasn't until after 5 that I got my rear in gear and headed out. I just went out the door and ran. I had no plan of where and how long. Just run to remember how much I love it. Running did not let me down. My fresh legs carried me quickly down the path. The sky was beautiful. The colors were amazing. So often in the PNW the rain drops leaves before we really enjoy the colors. This year the cool, clear weather--other than for the marathon--has allowed us to revel in the golds and oranges. An easy run became a bit of a tempo as my enthusiasm grew. My love of running returned with each footfall.
