Paradox of running
Among the many little epiphanies that constitute daily life, this evening’s was discovery of a paradox. When more time is taken to enjoy the views on a trail, precious run time minutes are spent on photographing instead of running, then the pace and distance improves. Not sure how. But it does. Ran a sub- 5:20 pace for a 12 km and finished it in an hour with four lovely pics of the spread of June sky above the trail. Dome of Asia, I run underneath. I’ve stolen it, appropriated it, for India, Gertrude Bell.
