Raison d’être

“Wildness is a necessity. I am losing precious days. I am degenerating into a machine for making money. I am learning nothing in this trivial world of men. I must break away and get out into the mountains to learn the news.” – John Muir

Do you ever just wanna go off the grid and build a cabin in the woods?

Feeling alittle beat up this week from dialing up the volume a bit, I am guessing. Oh how quick the body is to remind you that you can’t do what you did prior to injury and expect a different outcome. And I am questioning my decision to participate in the Ragnar Zion Relay… I have made a Con/Pro List (always conclude on the bright side):

There is running involved.
Preparing for trail running means less of the kind of training I actually enjoy.
Crowds of people are not my favorite. Especially all up in my nature.
The volume of work and it’s effects on my hip has me a little skerred…
Paying to run a race is silly. 

Sunrise at Zion is on my list. (I just don’t envision 200 people there with me.)
It would be fun times with the DTP crew.
It’s good to get out of your comfort zone. Or at least that’s what I hear.
