Every morning when I open up my email, I find a Quote of the Day from Runner’s World. Just when I was about to cancel my Quote of the Day subscription, this one popped up:
I think I get used to, even addicted to, the feelings associated with the end of a long training run. I love feeling empty, clean, worn out, starving, and sweat-purged. I love the good ache of muscles that have done me proud. I love the way a cold beer tastes later that afternoon. I love the way my body feels light and sinewy.
Kristin Armstrong, Author and runner
Word. But maybe I’d substitute a glass of red wine for the cold beer.
