USUALLY THIS WOULD BE A "SCIENCE FRIDAY" posting where a topic was researched in the medical literature. It happened to have been posted on Tuesday, earlier in the week, on blisters (April 26, "Blister Busting"). So I felt free to do whatever was going to be fun for today's post, at the start of the weekend!
A photo gallery piece from Active.com by Jason Saltmarsh, "WHAT MY DOG TAUGHT ME ABOUT RUNNING", is just about the most uplifting, want-to-get-out-and-enjoy-myself piece on running I've come across in a while. It was like the beautiful sunrise pictured above; it touched my "exhilaration button". Those of you with dogs, who sometimes wish to trade places with your pooches, would likely agree. Jason, thanks for the encouragement to enjoy our sport, whether it's running or walking!
BRIDGE TO PHYSICAL SELF
Running, walking, and fitness activities enable us to experience our physical selves in a world mostly accessed through use of fingers on a mobile device.
EARNED RUNS is edited and authored by me, runner and founder. I began participating in road races before 5Ks were common. I've been a dietitian, practiced and taught clinical pathology, and been involved with research that utilized pathology. I am fascinated with understanding the origins of disease as well as health.
