The more time I spend away from running the less likely it is I'll return to it. It's not that my love for the sport has diminished, but my need for it certainly has. I find myself thinking more about long-distance backpacking and less about long-distance running. I'm not ready for either activity right now but in time I hope to get back to doing something that will make me feel whole. Until then, I'm happy there are others out there willing to share their adventures.
