Seaview and Parker.
I went for a run at my parent’s house this morning. I love to run in their quiet Cape Cod town.
Instead of taking my usual right hand turn back to their house on Wianno Ave. I went left to follow Seaview Ave to Parker Road. It added 1.5 miles to the run.
It occurred to me as I made my way down Seaview, the sun shining on the ocean and through the trees, that I wasn't running for my diabetes.
I run because it is peaceful, quiet, and beautiful. I run because it feels good.
I run in spite of the diabetes; in spite of the blood sugar drops, the lifesavers and dexcom in my pocket, and the need to carry my cell phone.
