9km 42:35 (South Downs Way 50, session 20)
Today was supposed to be a rest day! However, I read ‘Call of the Wild’ by Jack London in one sitting and was particularly taken by the passage below relating to a scene based around running at night…accordingly I couldn’t resist the call of the trail so I headed on out!
“He was mastered by the sheer surging of life, the tidal wave of being, the perfect joy of each separate muscle, joint, and sinew in that it was everything that was not death, that it was aglow and rampant, expressing itself in movement, flying exultantly under the stars and over the face of dead matter that did not move.”
from ‘Call of the Wild’ by Jack London
