Jogging brings joy, especially on gorgeous jaunts.

Running kind of carries me away sometimes. OK, let me unpack that statement. It’s not that I’m floating along effortlessly. My feet are pounding on the ground. My lungs are huffing and puffing. But the journey takes over when the trip is particularly pleasing.

(This is reason #1,857,362 why I prefer outdoor running to treadmill running. Can we agree on that?)

Whether jogging or sprinting, don’t we enjoy the most scenic routes? I have some familiar favorites. I also love carving out new loops for running in pretty places.

When the trail is especially appealing, I lose track of time. I forget about the various parts of my body that hurt. I stop calculating how many miles I have left to run.

Today’s “Running Quotes by Non-Runners” example captures this concept precisely:

 “If the path be beautiful, let us not ask where it leads.” Anatole France (1844-1924)
