Running taught me how to meditate without even knowing what i was doing. That's the thing about running: Your greatest runs are rarely measured by racing success. They are the moments in time when running allows you to see how wonderful your life is.
just keep breathing: someone on the half marathon course this weekend held a sign that read “there will be a day when you can no longer do this, today is not that day!”, and I found it to be extremely motivational. I hope that day never comes!
