I am never usually very good at starting these things, or indeed keeping them up to date. However, I am hoping that this little corner of the internet could be somewhere lovely for me to share some thoughts, ramblings and gerneal nonsense about my life.
In short, my name is Aly and I love to run and be outdoors, if there is a dog involved then all the better. I’ve decided to make this blog to keep myself accountable for my running, training and for documenting my doing all those things I said I would do someday – because if it’s on the internet then it must be happening – right?
So, I thought I would finish this initial little post with a wee quote from John Muir, who really had a lot figured out when it came to life and the outdoors. This wee sentence pretty much sums up how I feel about running – it is my time to think, reflect, collect my thoughts, regulate my emotions and to see and explore the world, which I think, is the greatest thing to do.
“I only went out for a walk and finally concluded to stay out till sundown, for going out, I found, was really going in.”
