Couple days back during a regular stroll at Larz Anderson, the crisp air really got me thinking. Over the last year – work, exams and several other things have taken up a lot of my mind-space and I realized, I badly needed something else to get me back on my toes. Something to look forward to everyday and to keep me going. This, coupled with my want to enter into a better running regimen got me to consciously commit to running every single day. To start with, the goal is to run at least a mile every day, irrespective of weather, health or anything else the mind tries to concoct and come up with. It’s been just a few days since I decided to do this and I already see how hugely rewarding those ten – fifteen minutes being out there in the dark is. In a few weeks, I do want to significantly build up the mileage and hopefully be in a better shape for the TARC DRB next year.
Eventually, I do want to blend in more non-negotiables (reading, chanting, writing and whatever I think I’d ideally like to do every single day). Let’s call it ‘Deepening the non-negotiables bucket’. For now, here’s to more miles, trails and everything else that’s in between!
