Running Without Time



The watch gave one mournful beep and died. I nearly stopped, not sure how to keep going without it.

But then there was just me, under a cloudless sky. Breathing hard. Feet pounding the pavement.

Running like time and distance didn't matter.

  3. when we give up our clocks I think that's true freedom. To be able to run, or walk, or read or nap or love without glancing at the time.

    it's a nice place to be, without a care in the world.

  5. Very nice--I've tried to get into running many times over the years (but it's always been so difficult). I always admire people who can leave all the gadgets at home and just enjoy a run.

  9. Ha! That reminds me of times when my watch stops. I feel lost without it.

  10. Very good. I hate running, therefore, I fear I would have to stop if the watch did, because I wouldn't want to run one second longer than necessary. :D

  11. Oh, what a fantastic way to approach the prompt! It reminded me - for the second time in a week, oddly - of how, when I go camping, my favorite part is taking off my watch. Great job - thanks for linking up!

  13. Oh, to run free, without worrying about how much time has passed, what a wonderful idea in a world where our lives are too often controlled to the minute by obligations and chores.
