The Pavement Altar

After two full days of resting, I had to hit the road again. Lace up the kicks and take to the beautiful, if not hot, Griffith Park golf course for a 6 miler. Took me a mile to warm up the quads, but I managed to maintain a 9:20 pace for the workout. It was peaceful and nice to be back on the road again without the pressure of hitting a time. Something close to spiritual, although I am not a spiritual person by any stretch of the imagination. But I do visit the Pavement Altar enough to find some sort of center there. When I am able to tune out the rap music and the ticking clock, I connect with something more.
