Wherever I run, there I am

Saturday, December 27, 2008
'Wherever you go, there you are,' said Confucius. No confusion about that!

And it's never more true than when I go out for a run. Because sometimes I would like to run away from me. To escape myself, to get away from this person called Nicole.

On these runs, I run with all my might going: 'Nenenenenèèè! Eat my dust!'
But I never manage to outrun myself. On the contrary, myself is going: 'Nenenenenèèè!' too, adding: 'You can run, but you can not hide!'

Because wherever I run, there I am.
I suppose it's time to embrace that fact.
And myself!


  1. This morning I thought that the ice outside had fully melted and I could actually run outside. Somewhere around my last mile, I slipped on ice and landed on my bottom. I am so sore now but, it was so worth the run :)

  2. The last time I ran was when a dog chased me. I'd rather walk !!

  3. My brother whose in the Army just came in from Okalhoma and we have been running together. I have ran almost two miles without stopping which isn't as far as I would hope to be able to run by now but still good : )

    I love your site!

  4. If I thought I could run away from myself for a little bit, it might even start me running. While I come by regularly, fascinated by the running thing, I am totally not a runner.
