An early morning run with Van Morrison.
December 2, 2010
Ran in the rain. Again. It’s Oregon. Ran quarters with R. R. and had a good day. Finished 4 x 4 with gas in the tank. I love track work for the effort, the control, the darkness before daylight and the sense of time standing still…the old, slow guy going roundy-round feels the same inside, when he’s doing it, as he did when he was young and fast and had no idea of what was waiting down the road.

Van Morrison’s “Brand New Day” was playing on my ‘Pod this morning when I escaped from a bad dream and got up. C’mon day, do your stuff. “Brand New Day” was followed “Tupelo Honey”.
Van can bring a bad dream to its knees. Makes a guy fall in love with love. Gonna be a brand new day. Indeed.
So I ran hills. Ran too hard to start. Lungs bursting fire. Back locked up. Ran one, walked one. Recovered.
B. and R. ran, looking light on their feet. We finished together. Good run before daylight. Can’t ask for more that that.
