I Feel my Heart Pumping Hard....

Some weeks ago I ran across a quote that I just loved, from a Mary Oliver poem entitled Starlings in Winter:

I feel my heart pumping hard, I want to think again of dangerous and noble things. I want to be light and frolicsome. I want to be improbable beautiful and afraid of nothing, as though I had wings.

This is the way I sometimes feel while out on the trail...these are the types of runs that all ultrarunners live for.  Delighting in your running body and thinking thoughts that soar.
