5K variations

A 5K is the very least I do on any day when I run, usually on the treadmill. It is amazing how this repetitive task, even when done almost every day, even when done for months in a row, remains an experience of diversity. It can feel novel, it can be a challenge, sometimes it's comfortable, sometimes it' s easy, sometimes it goes by in a rush, sometimes it takes forver, on occasion it hurts, at other times it's exhilarating. In esence it is the same thing, over and over again, but it never feels the same.

That's the best thing about running!

My minimum run is 4 miles, but it used to be 5. I hope to move it back up to 5, but I use routes from my house rather than the treadmill. Each run is unique. Non-runners do not seem to understand that.
