My Sunday morning runs, alone in the park, listening to nothing but my feet hitting the trail, the water glistening along in the brook surrounded by a misty fog settling over the tree branches. Even though I wasn’t looking forward to running 10 miles this past Sunday, once I got out there I was in Heaven. Running brings us to a place that calms our spirits and refreshes our minds. Maybe not in the first mile or even the second, but at some point you realize that you feel at peace and the miles seem to melt away. Allow yourself these moments. It’s a great reason to run.
