  • "whenever i see a dog lunge and stride after a stick, i think of something you said when we were walking around central park over the summer. you said something like how its sad seeing dogs in the city becuase they never probably reach top speed. or even know what its like to reach top speed. they need open feilds, or a long stretch of beach.

    that comment stuck with me.

    starting in chicago on my runs i became very aware of dogs. mostly the ones that run. a lot. and really fast.
    and now in london.

    there is something so liberating watching dogs run. (as strange as it sounds)

    becuase it makes me think. am I where i need to be to be able to hit top speed when i see the open window to simply... go.

    I'm pretty sure there are some london dogs that have hit close to top speed... (chicago dogs too.)
    and i say "close" becuase i believe just when we think we've hit top speed...the size of our hearts can push us to go just that much faster.

    i hope youre where you need to be to hit top speed, saylor."
