"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 miles - big fort lane loop - in mile 8 i did 6x30 second hill reps on golden ave - this run felt very hard today. my recent increase in volume has me running pretty slow everyday but i know that eventually my body will break through and my paces will come down if i stick with it.

3 miles in the afternoon on the treadmill - very slow - it's not too hot outside or anything but i want to keep sprinkling in a few treadmill miles every week to increase my volume but take some of the impact off my legs
