Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

What Running Has Taught Me

Today has been a reflective today for me. And I started thinking about all of the things that running has taught me.

  • It has allowed me to be a part of a group of awesome people  Once a Runner, always a Runner
  • Running has taught me balance and discipline. 
Running is more than just putting on a pair of shoes, strapping on some gadgets and burning some calories.

Running has truly changed my life.
