Runner’s High And Rnner’s Gear

This trip in Paris brought back my initial runner’s high and the reason why I started running after many years of hating running.

Some lessons learned, and I hope I remember this when I get back in the states

  1. don’t run too fast, pace and I can run a long distance
  2. running is about endurance and longevity, I would rather run slower and run for the next 30 years than run very fast for only 2 years and hurt my legs
  3. when I run at a slower pace, and I have a destination, I can run 13 miles no problem
  4. it’s ok to stop for a break
  5. remember to smile

My daily routine to get ready

don’t shower in the morning, put on a hat, wear a nike sleeveless dry shirt, a thin and super light windbreaker, nike running shorts
