Community and Solitude
Thank you Jesus for a break in the heat. Wednesday am 10k humpday run was in the high 60s degrees and the most amazing cool breezes. So happy. It was a perfect running day before 6am. I returned to Castle Island and Carson Beach for my am run. This place was a hot bed ofactivity. I saw a workout group having their class on the beach, lots of men running this morning, and lots of women running and walking. I only saw one fisherman this am.
Fuel for Thought: Is it possible to find joy running around others but still wanting to run alone?
I enjoyed seeing all the people out running. It felt as if I wasn't running alone yet, I was. I think being surrounded by a community of runners, especially at 5:45am in the morning is another form of motivation and inspiration as well. I would try to pace myself with some of the runners that went by. I would look at them and size them up. In my own head make up a story about some of them- entertaining.
