This was day number five in my effort to keep running in the mornings.
It’s easier to stop than it is to keep going.
I was thinking about this documentary as I plodded along….and since YouTube has a copy for streaming right now, I thought I’d throw it up here.
It’s on Netflix, too….so if you wanted to watch a better version…that might be the way to go.
The thing that brought this to mind was the thought that one of the main objectives, for me at least, in these early days of new running, is to “just not get hurt”.
I’m not used to stressing my legs anymore.
My lungs are tired.
My heart needs to learn how to beat hard again.
So….I run with that in mind.
I don’t want to get hurt.
This documentary is about the Hemingway family….and the history of family problems they grew up with and each coped with in their own lives.
I carry baggage.
I carry baggage that I add to every day.
That’s crazy….but probably not uncommon.
This documentary is about all the efforts that Mariel Hemingway has made to understand her family history of mental illness and suicide….and how a person rises above that history.
Maybe when all is said and done, though, it could be that the main reason I wanted to watch it was for the scenes that took place in Ketchum, ID.
Mentally sick or mentally well…..I wanna go….to IDAHO!!
And….I don’t want to get hurt running.
I want to run well…..and healthy.
