We even came up with a couple’s theory: If a man starts running and the woman doesn’t, the marriage can survive. If both the man and the woman start running the marriage will probably be a lot better. But if the woman starts running and the man doesn’t, it will never last.
No matter how hard it was or how much I didn’t want to run that day, I always felt better afterward. Some days, that is what got me out the door. The best part was at the end of every day, when I had a sharp sense of having accomplished something measurable and definable. I won a little victory every day that nobody could take away from me.

It’s not that I can’t fall in love. It’s really that I can’t help falling in love with too many things all at once So, you must understand why I can’t distinguish between what’s platonic and what isn’t, because it’s all too much and not enough at the same time.
— Jack Kerouac (via moondance)
