"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

No run today. Two hours in a dental chair, with the laughing gas and the root canal and procedures on three other teeth ("as long as we gotcha all numbed up, you see."). The numbing still hasn't worn off so I'm just waiting for the love to begin - I'm sure it will be a doosie. The mouth wasn't made to be contorted like that for 2 hours straight. Hoping I'll be ready for a run tomorrow. Hope everyone is enjoying the long awaited heat - upper 80's today and mid 90's tomorrow!
