The early hours of Saturday morning see me pull on my running shoes and head out the door for my long runs.
My most recent long run was a slow and steady 26.5 km run. My peak long run will be about 42 km.
One of the best things I enjoy about my long runs is that I can pick a direction and just explore. Sometimes I come across the bizarre (a topless women going for a walk about in high heels in Colony Farm), but more often than not it's the beautiful. Like the above wooden planks across a river. Sometimes the weather itself dictates the beauty, like this frozen river I ran next to for several miles.
Running is freedom. The freedom to explore.
