The Zen of Running
And I like it.
Which is the most challenging concept to explain to a non-runner from a semi-runner. How do I like running? What is it about running that makes you get up most days a just run?
Here's the thing about going for a run and enjoying it: It's not about the running. Or the exercise.
I think that running is a throw back to the original freedom. Before there were cars, there was running. Before there were bicycles, there was running. Running was the only real chance you had to 'run away' (think about the roots of that phrase and how we use it in today's life) from whatever it is that you need to get away. The freedom is so real you can taste it.
Those are the reasons I run. And will continue to do so until that privilege is taken away from me.
So, tell me, what gets you moving?
