Running on my own

It's been a while since I've run alone. I've been lucky to have good company; commitments that get me out the door and down the road.

But not today.

To be honest, I was looking forward to it...to doing my own thing. Sometimes like to take my time and other times I crave speed. Sometimes I like to have the option of changing route mid run just because something looks interesting, or to listen to music..loud, or not, and just let the chirping birds tickle my thoughts.

This morning I chose music and speed. I started out slow in song and stride and just let it build; body warming, beating past the slugish jog. It was like my playlist knew exactly what I had in mind, the bass started pounding as I hit the hill hard;and then stopped short after a ripping guitar. All I could hear was pounding breath and crunching gravel as I claimed last of the hill; the perfect sound, life as the instrument.

    I like to run by myself sometimes too - but long runs are hard for me to do alone.


Please share your expressions!
