I am training for a half marathon that is taking place in 3 days. This entails a lot of running. When I say a lot of running it means in the last 3 months I have logged over 170 miles of running. This is crazy. I was not a runner. I used to smoke 2 packs a day. I only ran from things that scared me. This running has made me happy. It makes me so happy that I weep with gratitude while I run. And this Bjork song called Violently Happy rings through my ears EVERY.TIME.I.
