As I type this, not as it posts, it’s the actual day of the actual Baltimore Festival of Running. I am not running. I did my marathon, twice, earlier this month.
But the air is crisp and the sun is shining. It’s a glorious Autumn weekend morning… it’s a lovely day to get out and move.
And move I do. I trek over to the folks’ place, looping around to make the trip a bit longer than usual. Once I get there I’ve already decided that instead of pushing myself crazily to go as far as fast as I can, I’m biking (spinning) 10 miles, however long it takes.
On my way over, I put on my Walking playlist. As I push up the hill, I listen to my latest addition – Did You Think This Was A Love Song by Seven Years Dreaming [link]. It’s the first single by this group of very talented and also genuinely likable people.
I know they are likable because they’ve been friends of mine for years. And yes, I did know they were so talented. I just didn’t know they were working on this project. These are the downsides of moving away from groups of people that you love. You get out of the loop.
So I enjoyed, on multiple levels, the walk today. The sun on my face, the breeze on my skin, the music in my ears, my friends on my mind, the joy in my heart.
May you have such joy also!
PS I actually did 11 miles on the bike. In just a hair over 40 minutes. Good times!
