I’m in love with running. I didn’t always feel this way, but recently it has become one of my favorite activities. It allows for the opportunity to silence the noise, clear and free my mind, and provides the energy needed to get through the day.
I’ve found a routine that leaves me in a place of sweaty peace at the conclusion of the run. It all starts with clearing the mind of noise. When silence is introduced thoughts are allowed to flow freely. During this time there is space to annihilate self-doubt and negative self-talk. Once this process is complete, I crank up the volume on my iPod and celebrate.
There are some many distractions that we encounter day-to-day. Countless things, people, and tasks are constantly vying for our attention. After we have entertained, performed, and completed all the duties of the day we need a place of respite. Running has become that place for me.
