How To Run

Go For A Run

Just go outside and do it.

Hush up mortal, the shaman is speaking. Lace up your shoes – or go barefoot, if you’re into it – and go run.

Stop your thinking! I don’t want to hear it, nothing you can say is an acceptable excuse to not run. You are a human being a hairless monkey living on a rock spinning around a ball of fire, blasting through an infinity of empty space that is occupied by other rocks and balls of fire.

In other words: you don’t matter, and neither do your foul-smelling mouth noises that you call excuses.

So, just go for a run.

Just fucking do it. Bitch.
