The challenge in running is not to aim at doing the things no one else has done, but to keep doing things anyone could do—but most never will.
Joe Henderson in The Complete Book of Running
I am amazed with the natural beauty of the foothills trails overlooking Boise every time I run there. I often wonder, as I look down in the valley, how many of the people down there have ever had a chance to experience this natural wonder that is right in their back yard? My bet is it is a very small number.
The selfish side of me thinks, 'that's right let's keep it that way!' The other part of me knows what a great stress reliever and relaxation technique it is, and how much better would our world be if everyone could just relax and enjoy life a little bit.
