  • Sometimes, I am running away. Others, I am running to. Often, I am trying to outrun the thing that haunts me. Sometimes, it is a celebration. Others, a forced exercise in discipline. Often, I am just doing what I said I would. Sometimes, I am fleeing. Others, I am inching forward. Often, thankfully, there is a startling moment - another runner's smile, the shape of a tree, a joyous song I didn't expect, or a moon like this.
