What I see when I run; letting my guard down
Yesterday morning, I did my usual kettlebell workout but also added running afterwards. I ran four kilometers. In between my second and last leg, my mind began to wonder and my feet went with it. I began imagining what it would be like to have her run with me. An exchange of dialogues, moments of laughter and sincerity, words of nothing but the truth, just the two of us running and mayhaps a little bit in love.
I almost got lost.
I felt as if I was on autopilot. And when I came to, the surrounding trees and paved road didn’t seem familiar to me. Reality came and put me back on track. But sometimes I wonder if I had left my mind to wonder and my feet with it, would they have taken me to her? Would I have preferred to be lost searching for the one I wanted most than go a straight path where she’s already gone?
