I'M GOING RUNNING TODAY. I am not concerned about my calorie consumption for the day, nor am I anxious to get in shape for the winter season. I just want to go running。

  "今天我要去跑步。我不是担心一天的卡路里消耗,我也不是渴望在冬季保持自己的身材。我只是想去跑步。

  I used to dislike running. "If you don't win this game, you're all running five miles tomorrow," the field hockey coach used to warn, during those last days of October when the average temperature seemed to be decreasing exponentially. And so, occasionally, my grief-stricken team would run numerous miserable laps around the fields. At the end of these excursions, our faces and limbs would be numb, and we would all have developed those notorious flu-like symptoms; but the running made us better in the long run, I suppose. Nevertheless, I counted down the days until the end of the field hockey season, vowing never to put on a pair of running shoes again. Then I surprised myself by signing up for outdoor track in the second half of sophomore year. I was foolish to have believed that I could ever escape this insidious and magnetic addiction。

  我过去并不喜欢跑步。“如果你们没有赢得这场比赛,明天你们所有人都得跑5英里。”曲棍球教练过去常常警告;那是十月的最后几天,平均气温仿佛呈指数般骤降。是的,偶尔,我们可怜的球队队员会在田径场上痛苦地跑上很多圈。在长跑结束的时候,我们的脸和四肢会变得麻木,我们都会出现类似臭名昭著的流感一样的症状;我猜想,就长远而言长跑对我们有利。尽管如此,我都会数着距离曲棍球赛季结束还剩几天,并发誓绝不再穿上跑鞋。然后,连我自己也感到惊奇,十年级下学期的时候,我又报名参加了室外径赛队。我傻乎乎地以为我本可摆脱这种渐渐积累且磁性般的跑步瘾。

  Anyone would have thought that I'd be off the team in a few days, but the last week of January caught me splashing through puddles of melted ice, and February winds nearly blew me off the track. I looked forward to practices this time around, to the claps and the persistent cheers of my fellow trackies. I was feeling a "runner's high" spurred by the endorphins released by exercise. But to attribute my affinity for running solely to chemistry diminishes the personal importance that running has for me。

  任何人都以为我会在几天内脱离径赛队,但一月的最后一个星期,我跑过冰雪消融后的水坑,水花飞溅;二月的风里,我几乎被吹离跑道。我期待在这个时节训炼,以回应同伴队友的鼓励和不断的喝彩。我感受到因锻炼释放的内啡肽刺激产生的跑步者的快感。但是,仅仅把我对跑步的爱好归结于化学反应是降低了跑步对我个人的重要性。

  I like running—in the cool shade of the towering oak trees, and in the warm sunlight spilling over the horizon, and in the drops of rain falling gently from the clouds. Certain things become clear to me when I'm running—only while running did I realize that "hippopo*****i" is possibly the funniest word in the English language, and only while running did I realize that the travel section of The York Times does not necessarily provide an accurate depiction of the entire world. Running lends me precious moments to contemplate my life: while running I find time to dream about changing the world, to think about recent death of a classmate, or to wonder about the secret to college admission。

  我喜欢跑步-在高耸橡树阴凉的树荫里,在从地平线溢漫出的温暖阳光里,在从云彩中落下的雨滴里。当我跑步时,有些事情对我会变得清晰。只有当我跑步时,我才意识到,河马可能是英语里最搞笑的单词;只有当我跑步时,我才意识到《纽约时报》的旅游版并不一定提供了对整个世界的准确描绘。跑步给了我思考我的人生的宝贵时刻:跑步时,我有时间去梦想改变世界,去思考最近去世的同学,或去猜想大学招生的秘密。

  Running is the awareness of hurdles between me and the finish line; running is the desire to overcome them. Running is putting up with aches and pains, relishing the knowledge that, in the end, I will have built strength and endurance. Running is the instant clarity of vision with which I can see my future just one hundred yards in the distance; it is the understanding that these crucial steps will determine victory or defeat。

  跑步是对我和终点之间的障碍的意识;跑步是克服这些障碍的愿望。跑步是忍受疼痛,品味这样的认知:最终,我会建立起力量和耐力。跑步是瞬间视野的清晰,使我看到我的未来只在百码以外;跑步是一种理解:剩余的关键步子将决定成败。

  Running is not the most important thing in the world to me, but it is what fulfills me when time permits. And right now, before the sun goes down, I like to take advantage of the road that lies ahead。

  跑步对我并不是世界上最重要的事,但它却在时间容许下让我充实满足。现在,日落之前,我想利用前方的道路,再跑上一回。
