It’s so easy to get completely wrapped up in dirty little running thoughts. How many miles should I log? Or, How many days have I run? Or negative splits this, piriformis that (guilty), yadda, yadda, yadda.
Because running is somewhat of a discipline, you can become, for lack of a more interesting way to put it, quite disciplined with it. It’s a catch 22 really, because then again, it’s those same things we’re disciplined about in life that can cause us grief and frustration.
So when I ran past Bergdorf’s this morning while heading down 5th Avenue (I skipped the park today and instead did a big loop down to 1st Avenue, across 59th Street to the southeast corner, and back home), and I saw this, I smiled.
Actually, I ran right past it, but once it registered, I backtracked so I could show all of you. I’m not typically one to slap a quote on the day and say “live by this,” but for now, I think it’s a good reminder if nothing else. (By the way, I don’t mean one pant leg at a time, though I suppose that could be useful advice too.)
Hope everyone enjoys their Friday nights, Saturday mornings, potential Saturday morning runs (I have a great one planned with a friend), and everything in between. And thanks for sticking with me on my first week in the blogosphere! Your readership, feedback and comments are very much appreciated.
