Running and Life??

October 7, 2010

This year has been a year of more running for me then any other time in my life. As someone that looked for every reason to get out of running any distance longer then a short sprint as a young athlete, it’s become a quite enjoyable part of my adult life, especially over the past year… While out on a training run a few weeks ago, I got to thinking about how running can simulate life… And here’s what came of that experience.

Running… Sometimes it’s great, sometimes it sucks… Sometimes it’s slow and uphill, sometimes you coast downhill and other times it flat and steady. Regardless, you can only take one step at a time and put one foot in front of the other to get to your destination…

If you look too far ahead, it can be overwhelming. If you focus on what is right in front of your, things feel more achievable. Occasionally glance up to see your progress… When the finish line is near, it’s exciting!!
