It seems very appropriate that I should log onto WordPress today and the writing prompt be ‘Healthy’ – on the very day that I’ve run a 10km race. Running, like health, is a journey. Not just from the start to the finish line, but a journey that begins at some indeterminable point in time and doesn’t really have an end in sight. Well, that’s how it goes for me.

Like most people, I strive to be ‘healthy’. I try to eat well, I don’t smoke, don’t drink a great deal, I move my limbs as often as I can. It strikes me that being healthy is an undertaking to make the most out of all the journeys one experiences, not just for the sake of performing on the race track. That’s just a rather pleasant side effect that suggests you’re doing something right.

And that’s a good enough reason to keep running for me.
