"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka

2 miles on the treadmill - it's been 3 weeks since my last "run" - my wife and i spent two of those weeks in Italy, which was nice but i was wishing i had been fit enough to squeeze a run in. i didn't even pack any running gear - but i'm feeling motivated now and hopefully will keep on keepin' on. today i walked 1 mile, jogged 2 miles (9:15 avg), then walked another half mile. the retro, guitar driven, led zeppelinesque sounds of Greta Van Fleet kept me company

live to run another day
