Running Inspires Writing

Knock on wood, I’m on a roll.  Two runs in three days.  If there is enough advil and rest between now and Tuesday, I may get back in the game with my running buddies and make it three.  The best part is that all I can think about while I run is writing.  Things to write on my blog.  Love stories.  Confessions.  Sultry fiction that takes place on the racquetball court.  MBA-inspired corporate thrillers (is this even a genre?)  Speeches.  Toasts.  And of course, lists of things to be grateful for:

  • the pair of ducks that have nested in my neighbor’s yard
  • sore legs from running; resisting the urge to Aleve®
  • a few racquetball victories; more and more games on the books
  • forming consulting companies with classmates
  • the way a fresh coat of nail polish makes your hands look so pretty all day long
  • flowers, flowers, and more flowers; more flowers
  • skinny jeans
  • spring shoes
  • Sunday morning coffee
  • Diene’s event planning skills
