See this guy?
That's Anton Krupika, elite ultra runner. He lives in Colorado and runs everyday in the mountains. And he gets to hang out with Scott Jurek, another ultra runner.
I used to be jealous of the sense of life and beauty that people like him got to experience every day because they lived in the mountains. I live in ugly Houston where the main feature of the landscape is distillation columns, a huge forest of them.
Today, I was sitting in my office at the chemical plant and looking out the window at some equipment and I thought, "You could feel that aliveness right now. Just feel it."
Wow, you mean the sense of joy/happiness/aliveness has nothing to do with the world? Yup. Just feel it now.
I have on a new pair of shoes and my feet don't hurt. After a nap, it is time for miles.
