they pay to kiss your feet

since there's no one else around, we let our hair grow long and forget all we used to know. then our skin gets thicker from living out in the snow.

i ran 5 miles yesterday. and it was effortless. amazing. sunny. spring-like. i shaved three minutes off of my previous 5-mile time. i felt like i was floating.

i ran 3.75 today. in shorts. and a t-shirt. my face may have even gotten a bit burned and a lot more freckled.

and that's okay.

oh, and for the record, tomorrow marks one year. one year since i lost my job and became able to run at whatever time during the day i wanted to.

one. year.

and that's okay, too.

because good things have been happening. like saturday. when i got to hug someone that i hadn't seen, heard from or talked to for three years.

so as winter fades into spring and tulips push through soil that was, just days ago, covered in snow - new things are blooming in my life, too. good things.
