"If I used being busy as an excuse not to run
Saturday, June 30, 2012
i'd never run again. I have only a few reasons to keep on running, and a truckload of them to quit. All I can do is keep those few reasons nicely polished."
from Haruki Marukami, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, p 73 (Vintage).
quite an interesting book. su & liz, you will both like it, i think.
tomorrow's the race i'm not running. but i hope i will be able to run again this week, and after the first week, i have kept in shape and worked out pretty well for someone not supposed to run. how weird that i have a real excuse and don't want it. what a different person i have become. actually, not so different. except for liking endorphins and looking in mirrors sometimes and thinking about something nice to wear when i go out. oh and when i had company for dinner the other night, i wore something nice enough (ok, a green & white striped tshirt, but pretty) that i pulled out an apron to put over it. haven't put on an apron for years. usually i just drape myself in a dishtowel.
