Natural High…

Some runs are memorable for their time or distance others for the experience. Then there are those like today that are a Natural High. The run becomes more than physical exercise but an awakening – A Satori. When all of nature joins and suddenly you feel a part of the universe. Your senses become acute and you notice all the nuances of color and light. Birds seem to follow you, and a friendly squirrel races beside you in an alfalfa field. The breeze cools your skin and carries the musty scents of autumn. Nature sings through the babbling brook and the bird’s songs while your feet keep  rhythm as they hit the pavement.

I came away with a light heart and a lifted spirit today. This was a memorable run, a natural high – For this and everyday I’m truly blessed and grateful.
