Inspired by the very helpful staff at Princeton Running Company and my cushy new running shoes, I managed to put in 15.13 miles last Saturday morning before the clouds began to wring themselves out.
Self-imposed limits and old ideas are melting away as my legs carry me easily through the New Jersey countryside. If anyone had forewarned me 10 years ago that I would be running further than I was willing to drive for groceries… well… I wouldn’t have believed them. Especially not if they told me I’d be doing it in Central New Jersey – and loving it.
This is crazy shit.
I’m being propelled, literally and figuratively, through my anger and discomfort into a brand new life.
As I leave my past behind me, I climb over the worn-out walls I spent years building around myself. Freedom is mine at last.
