I went for a run Saturday while I was in Broken Arrow, OK. I just happened to be in the middle of GIANT housing development that consisted of multiple suburbs connected together. I really didn’t have a time or distance goal, I was just looking to get some running in and see how my ankle felt. As I started running, I took random turns here and there and didn’t pay too much attention to where I was going.
Eventually I decided that I should head back… so I started to head “back”. I guess I didn’t realize how lost I had gotten and couldn’t find my route back. Eventually I asked a guy weeding his garden which direction I was to go.
It felt so great to get lost in running. I didn’t really think about much, I just enjoyed the sun on my skin and air in my lungs. I would recommend doing this sometime…soon. If you don’t know of a place to get lost, try running a new route on Runkeeper. It is a website that has lots of routes in many towns/cities at various distances posted by real people. Give it a try! I know it has helped me get pumped about running again.
