Brisk: (adj) active,fast and energetic
Twice–perhaps three times.
There are just a few occasions when I found myself breaking into a run and feeling the air zoom by my face, suddenly propelled to a sensation of briskly passing over the surface of the Earth.
Being a chubby tubby, it is difficult for me to get to that station without extreme motivation.
But I remember one particular moment when I was walking and suddenly had the urge to run. (Once again, unique.)
I think I ran faster than I’ve ever run before.
Probably to the observer, it would have seemed insufficient, but at that juncture, I felt like an Olympic athlete.
It was so refreshing.
It was invigorating.
It was nearly intoxicating.
But as I said, only a limited experience, which has not happened for many years.
