Thanks for this good piece! I'm now a former runner (some of us slow down when we hit 80) but still a distance walker. I often re-read a first draft before I set out, and find that after a mile or two I've re-written it in my head to my satisfaction. This system doesn't lead to frequent posts, but hopefully to occasional well-thought-out essays.
