one foot in front of the other

i had a great run this morning.  more proof that runs beyond 3 miles start to actually feel good (for me anyway).  it was only 5 miles, but enough to break the 3-mile lake merritt mold…

last spring when i was training for my first half marathon in santa cruz, my coworker ripped a page out of vanity fair and gave it to me for inspiration – it still remains at my desk.  it is this portrait of hilary swank running on the beach…  hillary_swank_vanity_fair_portrait_exhibition

pretty damn incredible.  i will never run anything like this, but i’m grateful for runs like this morning that give me some of that free-feeling energy.  hopefully there will be many more to come in the months ahead.
