As I was getting ready to go out this morning for a run, a quick glance through the window prompted me to take a second look. I don’t remember the last time I saw such a heavy fog lying over the neighborhood. Undeterred, I headed out with Riley.
Less than a block from home, I realized how cool it was to be running through the fog with my dog. Visibility wasn’t really an issue, but it just left me with this surreal feeling that
you just don’t get everyday. More and more, I feel like an adventure runner who is looking for new experiences and opportunities to run. This summer I’ve run hills, forest trails, a marathon, speed sessions in the heat and now through fog. All these experiences not only make me a better and more fit runner, they make me feel like I did as a college student – a time when I set out for adventure and exploration.
