It took three weeks, but running is fun again.

It’s the lack of marathon-training pressure.

It’s the crosstraining.

It’s the new web site I’m trying out to help manage my diet and exercise.

It was the Thursday run with Caitlin and the Sunday run with Keith, Rick and Kevin.

It’s all of these, or maybe it’s none of these

I don’t care what it is, but I’m not running this morning and I wish that I was. I haven’t felt this way in a couple months.

Towards the end of training, running felt like a chore. After the marathon, running was more for recuperation than for fun.

Now … I look forward to my next run. It’s something I want to do, not something that I have to do.

I missed this feeling.
