"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

pm - 8 miles / 8:41 avg. bluff trail from jensen park. the run started out very rough the first three mile then things started to come together in mile 4 and i was able to run the last mile in 7:39. i don't know if y'all are getting this out south, but here in davis county for the last three weeks we've been inundated with swarms of these tiny little bugs. so much so that it makes it hard to control breathing, and i finish the runs caked with bugs.
