Two Hundred Thirty
February 3, 2015
7.57 Miles in 1:11:47
Mood: Sleepy, Floaty, and yet somehow centered.
Soundtrack: The BS Report / The Rural Alberta Advantage "Mended with Gold"
I woke up a little groggy, and that dreamlike state extended into my run. I floated through my run with an otherworldly vibe...it was a tiny bit like how I imagine hallucinogens would make me feel...only with significantly fewer tracers and freakouts.
As I ran, I listened to Bill Simmons happily discussing his Patriots winning the Championship. Since I was cheering for his team, his joy made me happy. It's usually fun to hear someone bask in the glory of their team's recent glory for some reason...even if it leads to people offering congratulations to other people who had absolutely no hand in the success. In this instance, it was Cousin Sal congratulating Bill on the Patriots win. These types of congratulations always feel as sincere as they are misplaced, and I enjoyed the whole silly spectacle.
As I was floating along and enjoying Simmons reflecting in the New England glory, I was treated to a truly glorious Tuesday morning sunrise. I had a ton of work and meetings to get through that day, my time was precious, but this run relaxed and centered me in a great way. The longer I engage in these morning runs, the more I appreciate them. Especially on days with awesome sunrises.
