You can’t help but to love the road

I honestly never thought I would be one of those people that loves to run, yet here I am.  Today, I had set out on a short three mile loop through Woodburn.  At the beginning of the run, I realized that I had forgot my armband that holds my I-pod, so I was without music.  I hardly ever run without music because the slapping of my feet always seems to be anti-hypnotic.  About the second mile, I think I forgot that.  Also around that time I though that I would extend the run just a little bit.  And then a bit more. Until I ended back a my parents’ house after eight miles.  It is truly nice to forget what bothers you, to push and just observe what is around you.  Momentary bliss through  step by step exertion.
