Running tip #71

Now matter how obsessed you may be with running (I prefer the term”passion” over obsession), it is important to cultivate other hobbies in order to have a long and healthy life in this sport.  If nothing else, you need something to do on your easy days and your days off!  Here I am with my latest love, a nearly-finished dorm quilt for my middle daughter:

Over the years, I have balanced my life with many different passionate interests … Shape-note singing, penny whistling, Zelda Fitzgerald, cantoring in a choir, barn quilting, poetry, documentary films (watching them, not making them), guitar, found art,  … even cooking!

So, what’s your other passion?  Better find one if you want to run fast(ER)!
