20 Kilometers of Happiness

They say the best things happen to you when you’re not ready or expecting it. It happened to me again, yesterday. I started my jogging routine when training this time required distance of 10k. nothing special. But at the beginning of the route I felt something special was going to happen. I overcame the need to challenge myself this time over anticipated. My longest run was 13k and that was about a year or so when i was almost in top form. It is important to note that i never target half marathon as a challenge or a goal yet. I caught a winter day in Tel Aviv and the starting point was haunted by a strong wind came from the sea. I started running from Ramat Aviv – “tel baroch” coastline . I looked at the horizon and saw afar the chimney Reading. I looked further and I saw the silhouette of the Jaffa Mosque and the wall. I wondered if i can get there and back.

Lucky, I was equipped with one energy snack and a water bottle. I realized that it would be enough. let’s go for it i thought.
When I got to Jaffa i noticed i reached a distance of little more than ten kilometers and  If I get to the finish point i lay in at least 20 miles. I felt good, my legs were light and steady pulse. I’m not sure if it was something in my head or if it was the  moment of perfect synchronization between the mind, body and spirit, but I finished the race back after 20 miles. Although it took me a little over two hours but I did it. For the first time in life. It’s a small step but so excited me and I was reminded how important it is done every day something new, learn something, we will just get up and do it. Yesterday at 11:12:12 I ran and did not plan, so much so I ran the first 20 kilometers of happiness.
