40 other amazing bloggers on a team sponsored by Nuun and I want to be ready.
Anyway, last night was my last of 3 days running in a row and it was also a night run. I was dragging before it even started. By the time I got out it was almost 9:00 and I had 4 miles to do AND it was still 97 degrees here in St. Louis so I knew it wasn't going to be pleasant but I went.
I always seem to do some of my best thinking when I run. Last night I started to think about why it is that I actually like running. Scientifically speaking, I'm not "fast" never have been never will be. I don't have great form, and sometimes it's downright painful. Since we normally gravitate towards things we are good at, it just doesn't make sense. "Scientifically".
Then I started to think about the "Art" of running. I think the thing I like about running is that it's everything I need in my life right now...
consistent yet spontaneous meaning it's always there when I'm ready and I don't have to prepare much to go for a run.
humbling and rewarding..like I said up above, I'm not a good runner. I run and most of the time, it puts me in my place. Most of the time it challenges me and forces me to dig deep and find a place I didn't know existed
