I believe a good runner who finishes his race no matter what the circumstance has got the race mind set needed for racing. I feel by running I can achieve anything I set my mind to do. It makes me feel that the problem will become my greatest opportunity. I feel strong at the end and confident. It erases all the cobwebs in my mind and clears my thoughts. I feel my muscles, “ache” while training but I know someone else is aching in this world. Running lets you know there is an end to the suffering. It is a healthy release of all pain and a knowledge that the body will survive. It centers who you are. Bring it on…………it is the greatest challenge for yourself.
“The highest levels of performance come to people who are centered, intuitive, creative, and reflective – people who know to see a problem as an opportunity.”
― Deepak Chopra
