“Are you late or cold?” the deliveryman asked as he caught up to me in the lobby.

“Hmmm?” I asked, preoccupied with the physical therapy visit to come … what would she think of my progress?

“Late or cold? I saw you running and wondered….” he trailed off.

“Oh!” Relieved, I flashed him a smile and answered honestly. “Neither, actually, just running for joy.”

“What?” Now it was his turn to be confused.

“Well,” I continued, as we stepped into the elevator together and began the long ride to the top, “I was very sick last year, and now I’m not, and I was just running because I was so glad that I could.”

“Wow,” he replied. “That sounds like a great idea.”

The doors opened and we wished each other a good day.

    I usually just lurk around your blog, but this was a great post. We should all remember to run “just because we can” once in a while!

    Have a great Friday!
