Write silently for the entire time provided.Prompt: I like to run. I’m slow, but I enjoy going long distances. I’m planning on running a marathon (26.2 miles) next year. Some people don’t understand why I’d do this. For me, running takes me to my “happy place.” It lets me clear my mind, puts me in tune with the natural world (when I run outside), and makes me feel free and relaxed. Plus, I always have a wonderful sense of accomplishment when I’m done. WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO to clear your mind, relieve stress, and feel free? What activity or hobby makes you feel happy and generally great? You may write about more than one activity and/ or hobby.
