hat

om

the new walk is five and a half miles long and at mile two and a quarter my legs start to cramp but i push on paying attention only to the pain and the music in my headphones and between the two i don't really notice the miles going by which seems odd as the pain of walking shouldn't distract you from the pain of walking but it does as though the energy concentrated on overcoming the pain is somehow subtracted from the energy spent on counting the curves and intersections till we get to the downhill part.

all the way that is both uphill and downhill i chant for and against myself. you can imagine how it goes. at turns elated and crushed but perservering on the steadfast horizontal no matter what.
