The alarm sounded but I didn’t leave my bed after turning it off. Instead, I stayed put and watched the trees sway outside my window. It’s was nice to not have to worry about being on schedule. I took my time getting ready and, after a long while, I was off like a herd of turtles.
Today’s run was the same as last weekend’s only I parked an additional half-mile away from the open space to insure my final long run for Big Sur would be at least 20 miles.
About 10 minutes into my run, I realized the significance of the day but there was no sadness that came with the awareness. Instead, I took in the memory and was happy to have had it.
