LAUREL COUNTY, Ky. —
When I run I’m not especially fast and I’m not especially pretty, but I can say I never stop. If I ever do, even to tie my shoe, starting up again feels so much like walking through water that it’s not worth it. So I just keep trucking thinking about nothing except the next hill and the road in front of me and whether I’ll be able to conquer it.
So I’m going to chew this Clif bar (which tastes a lot better than Parrillo) and tie up my sneaks and head out. Because, in the next month, I’ve got a lot of ground to cover.
