Running (Almost) Alone, Just a Matter of Balance
Everything is social these days. Everything but my workouts. I can’t stand to share this part of my life with anybody else.
Apart from my children. But they don’t want to run with me most of the time. :-)
Every other aspect of my life, as it happens to 99,99% of the people, is tightly connected to activities carried out by someone else. Maybe this thing of running alone is just to strike a balance.
On the other hand I do like running in parks as it is likely to meet other runners. I want to run alone and yet, at the same time, I need to feel I’m part of a community. A very loose type of community as I don’t need to interact with anybody. I belong just for the fact I am there, running as everybody else.
