On Solitude

“I like the solitude of running. Long-distance running is a loner’s sport, and I’ve accepted the fact that I enjoy being alone a lot of the time. It keeps me fresh, keeps me — oddly enough — from feeling isolated. I guess a lot of people find it in church, but I turn to the open road for renewal. Running great distances is my way of finding peace.”

  1. I read about running for a long time before I actually tried it. This was the quote that got my bum off the couch.

    Love it.

      Ah, but we were running as kids long before we could read. 😉

      This quote rings true for me as well. Like a friend said, “It was love at first run.”
