45 what? Minutes?

13 August 2008

Bring on the instant replay and cue the slow-motion montage of childhood photos narrated by Bob Costas, because as far as I’m concerned I’m an Olympian. I can’t remember the last time I ran 45 minutes, or ran at all with as little pain and effort as I felt tonight. Tonight was fun and easy and empowering and all those things running at its best can be.


And I re-learned a lesson: if I start out slow and really just concentrate on breathing, it isn’t that hard at all. Such a good lesson for running—and for all of life…yes, I will make whatever metaphors I please, thank you. I just ran 45 minutes, in case you missed it—Take care of the fundamentals first, and everything else (all the hard stuff) will get taken care of.

Jesus was a fan of wisdom that simple, so it must be good.


Another re-learned lesson: Kanye West on the iPod late in the run will 98% of the time make me feel like I’m in a rap video. A rap video featuring sweaty, uncoordinated white girls. Get it grrrrl.

I have a feeling that if Jesus could be, he would be a fan of Kanye. Dude wrote a song about him, after all.
