What I missed most about running

“Don’t you miss out on a lot by running so much?” a coworker, bewildered about my 10-mile long runs on the weekend, one asked.

Training takes time. A fitness routine takes time.

And it’s often not until you walk away for awhile that you understand how much time it takes and how much you are potentially missing.

When I leave my daughter home with my husband and head out the door for a run, I miss my little girl.

But I also thinking about what I’m gaining. And, after three months of no running, what I missed most wasn’t the actual running, but the ambiance, the friendship and the feeling of victory when I finished.

The sunsets too. I missed the summer sunsets, even on a bridge to nowhere surrounded by dead grass.
