I find it ironic how the types of runs parallel our lives. Take the loop for instance, this is when you have the same starting and ending point; for example many runners start and end their runs from home. No matter how far the runner goes he/she will eventually return to where they started, home. We do this in life as well we try to get away and avoid our inner demons and challenges, but no matter where or how far we go to avoid them the same challenges are there when we return.
Life is full of “Loops” or cycles, the trick is instead of avoiding them learn from them. As a runner I keep a log of my runs so I can see how my training is going. Diaries are a great way to log our mastery of living. Give it a try you may learn something about yourself!
