Yet that's just what runners do! Because it's all about the journey, the experience. Sure you could go from A to B in a straight line, but where's the fun in that?!
So today I ran to the city centre which is about 2 kilometers, only I took a long cut and ran 10 kilometers to get there. And since I always get lost there's never a dull moment, 'cause I'll be all worried and scared, thinking I may never get home again. Luckily a friendly gentleman on a bike gave me directions and helped me find my way again. Which is another gift of running: you get to meet all kind of nice people.
And as the miles went by I couldn't help but think: 'This is a good day!' Because how can a day be bad when you're out there, and your body feels alive and tingling and the birds are singing?
