Getaway with @CoachBennet

 

"I haven't seriously run since college. But lately, I've felt the need to run away from this place, this house, this city, this life. In response to this feeling, I've started running, just twenty minutes a day, and it has helped me deal emotionally with the amount of time being spent indoors. It feels better than a walk. I feel like I'm going somewhere, even though it's just around the block. While I don't personally use a running coach, I have heard a lot of great things about Coach Bennett, Nike's global head coach of running. I just thought I'd pass it along for anyone else who needs to get away and would like a little help getting started."

It is to be hoped that this shared experience of catastrophe will reverse the process. A new awareness of how each of us belongs to the whole and depends on it may strengthen the case for meaningful climate action, as we learn that sudden and profound change is possible after all.
