I'm comin' out of my cage and I've been doin' just fine

This morning I wanted to keep running FOREVER! At least for three miles! (^_^) But I had time constraints, so I just did the .25 mile walk, and 2.5 mile run, and .25 mile walk. During the running, though, I just wanted to run and run and run. It's never felt quite like that before.

So. Fucking. Awesome.

I mean, last week, when I did 2.5 miles without stopping for the first time, I was pleased with myself, and it felt good from that point of view, but it was hard. Today wasn't like that at all. Today was zen; today was teetering-on-the-brink-of-orgasm (but not in an annoying way) for about a mile; today was bliss.

I have some Very Deep Thoughts about this, but I've also got a lot of work to do this evening, so I'll just repeat myself again:

DAMN! That was so much fun!

Oh, and just to make this an even better day for living in the moment and fully in my body, I'm going out swing dancing at Frim Fram with Francis.

That's a total milestone! Congratulations! For me the endorphin rush kicks in after about 25 minutes. The only way I can get my lazy ass out in the mornings, sometimes, is to remember that: it can suck at first, but it WILL feel good (almost always) after a little while.
