My Forrest moment

Saturday, November 03, 2012

I run for my life - physically, spiritually, and emotionally. It calms me, empowers me, clears my head, brings me to a center. When I first saw Forrest Gump (I was very pregnant with Halleigh) the scene when he just decided to run appealed to me. Today it does even more so. Perhaps that is due to having "enough" life, love and loss to understand. Forrest explained it this way "That day, for no particular reason, I decided to go for a little run. So I ran to the end of the road. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd run to the end of town. And when I got there, I thought maybe I'd just run across Greenbow County. And I figured, since I run this far, maybe I'd just run across the great state of Alabama. And that's what I did. I ran clear across Alabama. For no particular reason I just kept on going....." That is what I did tonight. Sixty minutes nonstop running (which is a new personal record for me times a gazillion as I do walk/run intervals) at a very respectable 15 minute/mile pace on the treadmill. It may not be much for some - but for me was a marvel at what I could do. I still feel like I could jump back on the treadmill and keep going. I feel you loud and clear I just kept going.
