Isabelle and Hugo were maybe going to go for a run this morning at 6:00. They asked me last night if I wanted to go: "Yes - if you go I will go", I replied. In the morning a door opening woke me up, and I remembered that I'd said I would go with them. I looked at the clock - it was 7:30. Isabelle was leaving for work. No run. I was both relieved and disappointed.

Using a high quality piece of equipment is very satisfying. The way it feels and moves - smooth, solid, efficient - is reassuring.
