Over at Another Mother Runner, I put in some meaningful miles and, as anticipated, grouse about the weather.
- I, um, wow.
- The more I read from Taffy Brodesser-Akner, the more I want to read from her. The last graf of this is perfection.
- Somehow, I am always surprised by how petty people can be.
- We fear the wrong things.
- This world is a wonder.
- This is a searing, gorgeous piece of writing that will change absolutely nothing.
"Another cornerstone — when you think you are running hard, run harder. Try to keep running harder for longer than you think you can, bringing your body and your mind closer to the edge, that moment when the ritual becomes the revelation. Running, he knows, is filled with truths that can be found only when we learn to be comfortable with discomfort, to go to the place we fear more than any other — and stay there, without fear."
-- from Matthew Futterman's book about running guru Bob Larsen, as quoted in the NYT
I know. Long time, no update. I've been out of the country and wrote a little about my adventure for Another Mother Runner.
