Fast forward to today. Tonight, to be accurate. In some insane moment I thought it would be a good idea to sign up for a 12 week running class. What was I thinking?! I guess I was thinking it's time, way past time, to exercise more than my music and reading muscles...it's time to say hello to stronger muscles, a better attitude, and a healthier body. I'll keep you posted because let me tell you....this is so far out of my comfort zone I'm in the next zip code area! Maybe I was inspired by Walt Whitman's The Runner....
On a flat road runs the well-train'd runner,
He is lean and sinewy with muscular legs,
He is thinly clothed, he leans forward as he runs,
With lightly closed fists and arms partially rais'd.
Or maybe I just really, really like my new running shoes....
Keep tuned for the adventures of the poetry-loving runner!
