Runner's High by Andy Winnefeld

So after a meeting tonight, I thought I would run a lap at Sherwood Park. My hip has been hurting some, but felt good tonight. The first lap was good. The second was even better. I knew this was going to be awesome! I was not sick, tired, or injured. The faster I ran, the better I felt. I reached a transcendental state where time had no meaning, and problems were non-existent. I thought about people who had wronged me long ago, and forgave them all. I thought about how lucky I was to live in a wonderful place and have a wonderful family! I thought about how beautiful life was and how people should try harder to understand one another. Anyway I didn't want the high to end, so I kept running. I don't even know how far I ran, but I know it was a PR, for I was running as fast as I could, yet had no pain or respiratory difficulty. After a while a car honk occurred and I looked at my watch and 50 minutes had passed, and although I didn't want to leave, I do have to work tomorrow. I sang Any Dream Will Do all the way home in the car. Still on the high now. All natural! Any way LIFE IS GOOD! and I LOVE YOU ALL!
