Train for a purpose

Some people log running miles as a build-up to a race -- a 5K, a half-marathon, or longer.

When that's the case, the focus is on time over distance, or heart rate training, or hill climbing, depending on the type of event chosen as the goal. 

Right now, I have no performance goal.

I want to stay relatively healthy.  Happy, too, if I can.

So it is nice to go out and move in the world with the least possible stress.  No camera.  Not paying any attention to the chrono on the watch.  Just trying to move with a modicum of balance and harmony through the world out there. 

Mental health running.  Soul health running.  That's where I'm at as a runner right now.
