what bill murray said

tuesday

What a great run today!  16 miles around the city, first around the Buffalo’s newly developing waterfront, then back up to and around my favorite spot, Delaware Park.  It was freezing at the start, late morning, in the teens again, with windchill along with light snow.  But the 16 miles cut through the cold and made a winter wonderland out of it.  Why 16 miles, because I felt rested and felt like it.  The cushioning of the ground from the light fallen snow made the distance seem not so far.  It was 2 hours of pure bliss.  Reminded me of some of the best runs I had while training for the marathon…got me thinking maybe run another one sooner than later…

Initially reluctant to go outside in the cold and snow, I remembered a recent Bill Murray interview where he said he and his brother often say to each other, ‘life’s not a dress rehearsal,’ that you only go around once.  The phrase stuck in my head throughout the run for some reason and was so motivating for this day and the rest.
