I’ve been running on and off since 2012, and I’ve been trying to lose weight for a few months. I’m not very good, but I love it. I never feel more alive that when I’m running.
I think as adults; we feel guilt over so many things we think we “should” be doing. When I’m running, I feel like there’s nothing better I could be doing in that moment. I am living the best possible moment I could be living. And I feel alive and empowered. It feels great.
So anyways, I’ve been trying to run more often for the last few weeks… Today I was running, and this minivan drove past me, and some like 14-year-old boy yelled out the window something like “run fat ass,”
But then his mother turned the car around and made him run like 5 blocks with me while she drove next to us. I almost slipped from laughing so hard.
She left me with this parting message, “Children are the living messages we send to a time we will not see.”
