A great day for mail today! Not only did my Runner's World magazine arrive today, but my Netflix movie was "The Spirit of the Marathon" which I watched while eating my ice cream. Haha!
It was wonderful to immerse myself in running lore and lingo. And yet, it was almost bittersweet since I can't run right now and am thinking of the months left to go before I can get back out there. With spring there seems to be an abundance of runners out now. As I drive down the main highway near our home I usually see 2 or more runners out - mostly when it isn't raining. And a number of friends and acquaintances have begun running, or at least made their running known to the Facebook world. And this all fuels my desire to run again. Even my husband knows. We passed a runner last weekend, while driving home from somewhere, and without even looking at me G said, "Only a little bit longer," knowing that was probably what I was thinking. But for now I can read about it and watch it on TV and pretend.
