I’ve been running for as long as I can remember
I run because its fun
I run because its free
I run because I know whats its like to not be able to run
I run for the benefits
Mood boost – energy – clear headedness
I’ve even tried to run away from myself
I run to remind my mind of who’s in charge
When I feel like quitting I make a conscious decision to keep going
Who is this I – I refer to?
Because it’s obviously not my mind
It’s not my body
Hence why I have to tell my body and mind to keep pushing through the tiredness and the pain
It’s something so subtle
Not of body and mind
It’s far greater than body – mind
Who is the one behind the mind?
Who is the one behind the body?
Who is unchangeable? Who is ever present?
Who is really running the show ?
