Can't Stop, Won't Stop

Did a 3 mile run today in these wonderful shoes. 

Yes, I said "run." You know me. I can't be content to sit back and relax. I want to move. I want to feel my legs and lungs and heart working in harmony. I want to get sweaty. Running isn't just a sport. It's a total way of life. I miss it when I can't do it. 

I'm happy to report that my legs held up fine today. They feel rested and strong, despite putting them through their paces last Saturday. Tomorrow I will rest, and then maybe go for a longish run on Sunday. Next week, Lord willing, I want to do a hike I've long planned to do, and that is to climb the Maryland Heights Trail overlooking Harpers Ferry. I'm told the view from the overlook is simply unparalleled. The weather promises to be perfect, and the fall foliage should be in full display. 

It's time to begin the journey to my next marathon, and I could not be more excited for this opportunity to race again. Can't stop, won't stop. Marathon training is a level of dedication you really have to dig for. But crossing that finish line is such a special moment. 

On to the next challenge!
