One of my favourite movie scenes is from Forrest Gump. Forrest, being left by love-of-his-life Jenny (Jeh-Nay), puts on his Nike Cortez, a cap and starts running. He runs across the country, grows a beard and develops a cult following. Basically though, he was just getting some air and clearing his head.
The massive allure of running for me was the idea of being able to put on a pair of running shoes and getting outside. No planning, no real gear and a basic sense of freedom. I especially enjoy running past people stuck in traffic. All of these feelings would come with the other disciplines but with running it was instant gratification.

Even this week, being in CT it was so convenient to pack my running stuff. Tonight I’m going to run up Lion’s Head so hold your breathe on some great pics tomorrow 😉
