Running through my head
I’ve been having a severe headache the past 2 weeks. When it’s there I don’t function, I don’t even want to talk to people I meet in the street. I just hunch and grin, making my excuses with a lazy hand in the air. When the headache is not around, it’s such a relief. Like now. Waking up with headache at 6 am a few days ago I pulled myself together and went for a run. I had this image of running and letting the wind blow right through my head, cleansing it, relieving me. And it worked. So, now my running has become medical. About a year ago I had a similar headache for 6-7 weeks. No doctors or pills could help me. Everyday it got a little bit worse, leaving me with headache 24 hours a day. Out of desperation I went to the emergency, hoping to meet a specialist in neurology. I did, and he told me to pick up my running in the woods, which I had stopped with due to my condition. It helped, and within 2 weeks the headache had vanished. It’s just that you don’t really feel like doing anything physical when you feel that bad. But this time I will lace-up and hit the trails even though I suffer. I don’t lack reasons. I’ ve just finished reviewing the first 14 new trail shoes, and I got about as many left.
Talking about trail shoes. I promised to promote the closing sale of trail shoes on Trailstore.se. Brands: Montrail, New Balance, Salomon, Inov-8 and Merrell.
