One of life’s simplest pleasures is going for a run outside. The late Dr. George Sheehan summed it up best: “Out on the roads there is fitness and self-discovery and the persons we were destined to be.” So once in a while let’s forget about footwear, performance standards, and high-tech gadgetry — and instead simply let your body and imagination take you to new and familiar places. Armed with a sense of play as you run, there is no better purpose or outcome other than to escape and be in the moment. That’s the core message of the following video shot and produced by Joel Wolpert that I appear in. Enjoy.
