I run without music.
yes, yes, yes, all those miles in the silence.
I have been getting a lot of weird looks about this recently.
but running is some of the most peaceful moments my mind has.
my body may be aching, screaming, and altogether throwing a huge hissy fit.
but my mind is quiet.
focused solely on getting one foot in front of the other.
there is no more worry about school
no more worry about where to live
no more thoughts about work
just utter quiet.
and peace for my soul.
