First or Last: A Matter of Perspective

Posted on Updated on

As I take my first steps on this run, the New Year will be welcomed in my home city of Sydney.

Will my run be the first act of the New Year, or the last gesture of the year passing by? It doesn’t matter much. It is just a matter of perspective.

Either way, I will be bridging the years with running across both the old and the new. The Last and the First.
