Run with Wind in your hair

How soon one forgets what it is to run.

Not run to get someplace, definitely not running to catch a train.
Not run a race, competing with your friends, crying when someone else gets the medal.
Not run to keep fit – ‘fifteen minutes, 76 calories, that should take care of the glass of champagne I should not have had last night.’

Just running; for the sheer joy of running!

Children do it all the time – wind in their hair, smiles on the faces, sheer joy in every uncoordinated limb.
Does becoming an adult mean you have to forget childhood pleasures?

Drabble (n) - an extremely short work exactly one hundred words in length. The purpose of the drabble is brevity and to test the author's ability to express interesting and meaningful ideas in an extremely confined space.
