Seen on My Run

February 10, 2016

Every Wednesday or sometimes Thursday morning, I run with some crazy girls at 5am. Crazy because they are willing to meet me at 5am, and nice enough to go at my pace (and because they are ultra runners who have some wonderfully crazy adventures!). When I drive to our meeting spot, I see the morning sky and I’m always enthralled by it. This week, it was particularly alluring – the crescent moon was smudged behind some clouds but the stars right next to it were clear. There was some broken up floating pieces of clouds up above, mimicking the look of the Milky Way Galaxy.

As I waited for my Garmin to catch the Satellite, I looked up.

And as I looked at the nothingness that held everything, I wondered …

What lies beyond Infinity?
Is it unexplored destinations?
Is it serenity?
Is it chaos?

What purpose do I have in this Infinite ever expansive universe?
Where is my place in all this?

So many questions that comes up just by gazing out to the clear morning starry skies. No wonder that expansive space has inspired many a traveler and many more science fiction writers. 

To be able to gaze upon the night/early morning sky is one of the greatest joys that brings peace to the soul and fires up imaginations.

Why I loved Hiking the Appalachian Approach Trail

February 8, 2016

“Because in the end, you won’t remember the time you spent working in the office or mowing your lawn. Climb that goddamn mountain.” – Jack Keroac I’ve been very fortunate to live in Atlanta with very close access to some beautiful places. They may not have the dramatic breathlessness of the other popular nature spots in […]

Friday Five: January RUNfessions

January 30, 2016

That saying that “Running is cheaper than therapy”. Very true. There is nothing like unburdening your soul to your running friends with the unspoken rule that what’s said on the road, stays on the road. But there are still somethings that you don’t get to talk to your BRFs about perhaps because there are other […]

This week was all about building back gains that I had started last week after sickness – going back to basics and just focusing on marathon training running without clutter/chatter from other activities. I focused on getting 4 runs in the week and because I skipped swimming, added one more base run to that. I […]

Friday Five: Fictional Characters I want to Train With

January 22, 2016

When it comes to running with people, some runners are social and love company while some runners closely guard their run time as their alone time. I fall into the former category most of the time, and run alone only when I have a specific training workout to do that I need complete focus on […]
