W5R2 today. After having struggled so much last time, I was a bit apprehensive. So last night I filled out on crumble (not too much, with my own favorite dough and fresh plums from a friend's garden), drank a lot of water, and after a good night's sleep I got up at 5:30 and hit the road.
Well, it was lovely. Dawn was just beginning, the moon and Orion were still high in the sky. And after my usual difficult first 5 minutes, I realized that I was actually enjoying running. I think that's a first for me. Until now I enjoyed the outdoors, the changing sky, the woods and their scent, and the occasional wildlife encounter, but I had not yet taken pleasure in that sheer motion, that sense of freedom. Maybe I'll become a runner after all
That's a good thing I enjoyed myself because next run is scary W5R3 !
Wildlife headcount for today : 1 fox.
