Run for Clarity

Running clears my head. I used to run plugged in – ear buds in, listening to an upbeat playlist. Fearing that I would be left alone to my thoughts, which often included, ‘you’re breathing sounds laboured, slow down…no don’t slow down, I want to run better, faster, stronger…ugh, that person whistled at me…’, I turned the music up so that external noises – including my laboured breathing – were inaudible. 839 more words
