"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

4 miles - lobster loop - had a homeless woman run with me for about 30 seconds inquiring if i had been overweight at some point in my life and if i had a bad back. she'd had some sort of wager going with her boyfriend about me - i told her that i was about 30 pounds heavier a decade ago, and my back was fine. i must say she ran with pretty decent form.

8am - light rain, upper 40's - very nice for running

4 miles - owensatch loop - i managed to acheive my mini goals for this month as i ease into training for the marathon in september.  i wanted 150 miles for the month, ended up with 155. also ran at least one 10 miler, and a 40 mile week. no injury so i feel ready to dive into some actual running these next several weeks.
