That would've been easy. I don't usually do the thing that's easy, though. So, at 8:30pm I set out to get that 5k done. That's what it was about tonight — making it happen. It was already pretty dark (when did it get so dark at 8:30pm?), and we went to Milkmen's Lane, where there are no lights (note to self, "Self, don't walk down Milkmen's Lane after the sun sets). But it was beautiful out tonight. It was a little muggy, but the cloudy sky and the later hour combined to produce stillness that one doesn't often find in the city.
It's easy to skip some days. It's easy to say life is too busy. But getting out there and doing that walk felt good, in my feet, in my body, in my mind and soul.
