Keeping it simple

Rules for keeping it simple:

- Distance - something you can run in less than 50 minutes. This way you do not have to worry about water or a bathroom.

- Outfit - you have to dress for the weather. The theme of this blog is, "All Beautiful Days." But there is such a thing as a bad outfit day.

- No watch - sometimes the seconds matter, but most of the time they do not matter one bit of a second. Do yourself a favor and leave the watch at home for one or two runs per week. No GPS either.

- Location - this is important and worth planning, even if that sounds "unsimple." I think you should plan the location to be someplace safe and relatively quiet. In Milwaukee and Cleveland this is not a problem. Wherever you are, I really hope this does not mean a ride in the car before and after your run. If it does, you should move.

- Company - go alone. In case you have not already realized it, running is a lonely sport. Not all the time, but most of the time you are running on your own. Enjoy the time to yourself.

- Time of day - anytime that works for your schedule.
