2019-03-13 - Pointless runs

randy flowersYesterday I had a fun point to point run, something I don't do often enough. There is a strange motivational quality to running someplace as opposed to ending up where you started. I guess that makes sense at some level. Due to the nature of a point to point run, once you start, it's kind of like you are all in, if you're headed home or to work or whatever, you will need to finish this run no matter what. With the high winds we've been having, running point to point can make for a pleasant run on an ugly day. That said, yesterday was a beauty and my run was a bit uphill and into a light headwind, still, a rewarding run all around, adding to my sense of accomplishment and sense of adventure. I need to remember to ask more often, "Hey, which way are you headed? Do you mind dropping me off along the way?"

Turn your loop into a straight line today,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner, keeping it fun and getting it done.
