Note to Self...


Just another visual on a day's run. 

Running is a very measurable activity, if you want it to be. Hell, if you're a runner, you might even keep track of your daily miles, weekly miles, PRs, goals, long runs, minutes per mile, heart rate, maybe even your VO2 max . You might even write these things down in a journal somewhere (ok...I'm guilty of some of these, but not all!). But is this a good thing? 

During my run today I told myself to stop and look around once in a while. As soon as I did, I stumbled upon a few things. It was worth the 2 minutes and 45 seconds added to my run. Note to self...try to remember the journey is the reward.  

Maple Leaf Ball?

it reminds me of the final line of "Ferris Bueller's Day Off"....

"Life moves pretty fast, if you don't stop and take a look around once in a while... you could miss it"

That maple leaf ball is pretty sweet. I'm with you, I'd rather lose a few minutes and have a little bit slower pace to enjoy my surroundings. (That's why I run trails - so I have an excuse to run a little slower.)
