I had the most fantastic run yesterday evening. I headed out just after sunset, bringing a headlight, but as it turned out I didn't need it. Instead I found my path illuminated by the moon. So I ran along the fields, with the stars above me, moonlight behind me, music in my ears and a gentle and fragrant spring wind around me. My feet were flying along without hurting, my heart was pumping without cramping, and my breath was flowing without my lungs giving up. Even after a very tiring day I felt like I had energy within me, and it made me feel strong and alive. It was an absolute joy, and when I got back home I couldn't help but just standing in the moonlight for a long while, arms outstretched and grinning like an idiot. I felt so happy, and I cannot wait to get out and run again.
I've been wanting to fall in love with running for over a year now, and at last I think I'm starting to do it. Absolutely, totally head over heels.
Love and running,
