"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

11am - been super fatigued the last couple of days, don't know what's going on. it's obviously not from running so i guess i need to eat better or something. i could always use more sleep. i wasn't going to run at all today and just rest up but i thought a gentle treadmill run might do me more good than harm. live to run another day!
