Run, Run like the Wind

Today, I ran (slowly) for the first time in almost twenty years. I was out on a walk, and a jogger past me. So I started to jog, and did so for about a mile. For me, it felt like quite an achievement.

I had to quit running because of arthritis. I may yet regret that I ran today, too, but it really brought me a rush of joy. I felt twenty years younger, which at my age, is welcome. I used to run all the time, forty or more miles a week. I have missed running, and it just felt good to be moving again.
