The name of this blog is “Wags Outside”. I explained the reason for the name in my first post back in the fall of 2005. My time outside has always seemed more authentic somehow – certainly time better spent – than the countless hours I spend behind my desk in my office with the window that is sealed shut. The nature of the outside activity actually matters little – it can be riding one of God’s natural rollercoasters in a whitewater raft, building a backyard treehouse for my kids, tending a campfire that will lead to s’mores and sing-a-longs, going for a long run, or even mowing the grass.
Why I’m not a park ranger, I don’t know.
Anyway. Today’s outside time was a good long run on the Rivanna Trail. And it did the trick. Outside air + exercise = money saved on therapy.
