i'm not going to lie, the last month or two have been rough ones. personally. professionally. in general. life has been challenging in general and last night i got more bad news - the death of a friend from college.
these times could lend themselves to curling up in a ball in bed and not getting up for a few days. i've had more than a few days where i was far more inclined to say screw it than face the day.
instead, i run.
not only was i supposed to take a longer run, i needed it. i decided on the full loop with a run from my house to the park.
thunderstorms barreled down last night and when i headed out the park glistened with new rain. a new beginning. a clean start.
i ran sadly. and wistfully. and regretfully. and full of memories. i ran full of questions and doubts, and love for my friends. i ran and remembered.
dearest shane, i hold your beautiful smile close to my heart.
and the rain begins again.
