Quiet Running

The past three days, I was without my headphones.  I left them at work on Friday and didn't feel like turning around and getting them after I realized this halfway home.  I didn't think too much of it, until I got up to go running Saturday morning.

I always run with my headphones.  I'm either listening to a podcast about technology, listening to an audiobook, or just plain old Music.

The three days without my headphones was an experience.

The first thing I noticed was my breathing: I could hear it and focused on it.  I was trying to not take short, shallow breaths.  I had to try NOT to focus...I thought the noises from Nature would help distract...

...but it was eerily quiet.  Besides the occasional car, there were essentially no other noises.  Nothing.

I do know where all the dogs live now :)
