As I approach 80 years of life, I am convinced that your brain can make things better. Jogging has taught me that. I learned from a squirrel securing an acorn and watching her embellishing the accomplishment: it is easy to say "smell the roses," but hard to have a willing nose if you don't take the time to do it.
I've learned to run
on the "high road."
If I come to a puddle, I do my best to go around it. If I can't, I jump in with both feet.
I've learned to notice and appreciate the beauty I see as I go down the road.

I run for my mind.
But most of all "
I RUN TO LIVE.
