The dog and I went out for a run on Sunday at the nearby state park. There’s a lake there. Together with the weather, the lake made the 3-mile run more tolerable. There were also plenty of people. The nice weather does that. It draws people out the door and to the outdoors. A lot of those people had dogs with them, making for interesting encounters on the different trails.
The primary reason why it was a good day, besides the weather and the beautiful setting of the run (and the run itself), was that I got to “zone-out” and clear the cobwebs out of my head. After what happened last week while I was in Mexico, I really needed a good hour like that to just clear my head… “Clear the mechanism,”([v_icon color=”#444444″ size=”16px” name=”awesome-film”]) as it were. Even as I was huffing and puffing, I was able to think about and focus on things that mattered, forgetting the things that didn’t. That was a good feeling. That made the day that much better.
I hope to be able to do it again soon.
