"Engaging in a little suffering — however self-imposed, arbitrary and contrived — before breakfast each morning tends to demand some humility and injects some marked relief into the rest of the day, making things sharper, more inspired, more immediately aware of the powerful presence of being. And that seems really worthwhile." A. Krupicka


"I cruised down hills, churned up hills, and floated over the asphalt, existing in a world that seemed to lack the confinements of such ubiquitous rivets as time, obligation, or pain. I knew then that this was destined to be one of those serendipitous runs for which so many of 
us strive yet so rarely achieve." J. Nevels

10.2 miles / 10:09 avg. Ran from my house UP Farmington canyon to the BST, then out south and back. Good trail running to start May off. Mostly sunny but a little chilly in short sleeves.

12.5 / beyond easy pace. Commute home. Overcast, temps in the low 60's, pretty good wind coming out of the North, so the majority of my run was with a nice tailwind. 

"They're" extending the parkway trail that constitutes 4.5 miles of my commute. Since the trail runs at an angle through the neighborhoods I pass through, it will cut my minimum required distance each way from 9.1 miles to less than 8 miles. So a two way commute will only require 16 miles for the day, which is easily extended if I choose.

WT 58 miles.

Too busy with work to get in a run today (maybe tonight). I kind of need the break anyway. 

All you shirtless bloggers are making me jealous! Enjoy the great, sunny, warm weather!
