What’s the best thing you did this summer? If I had to distill 2018 into its best part, it would no doubt be all the miles and miles I’ve ran along my favorite paths and trails. The simple peace I’ve found pounding away at the pavement in that thick, humid, hot Summer air, it sounds ridiculous, but it’s fed my soul in ways I never could have imagined. It’s so difficult to articulate the way I feel immediately following an all out sweat session. It’s unlike any rush I could describe. And although I admit this training cycle was brutal at times, it will feel so odd once it’s done.
I don’t think I’ll ever forget some of those crazy lightning storms I ran through and cannot possibly emphasize enough the rush it is just to go full-out trying to outrun mother nature. I know it sounds ridiculous and a little dangerous, but every now and then you need a little excitement and brush with possible death to remind you just how important it is to be grateful for every day of your life.
What about you? What is the best thing you did this summer? Ever get caught in an electrical storm?
