Running Through “IT”

Today’s short training run felt like I was running in molasses – It’s been an extra long week at work and it was humid as hell… (come to think of it hell probably has a dry heat)

Anyway I digress, I’m sure everyone has had a day training or at work when you’re not at 100%. Today was the day for me, until it wasn’t. Allow me to explain. Like I said it’s been a long week of teaching karate classes and my usual Wednesday training run was put off for a few hours because of work commitments. I got out of my car at the park ready to get some form training done. I started down the trail and I felt like I had the wrong legs, mind you I’m not the most graceful runner I slog — But even my slog felt awkward, I thought about calling it a day then decided not to, after I hit mile one I still felt like a car stuck in first gear. Then my mind settled into the music (Neil Diamond can do that) and It became easy and peaceful.

Once I allowed my body to move without me thinking how beat my legs were or how humid it was. I was fine, I let go of my ego and just got lost in the movement, the moment and that’s when it hit me, I ran through “IT”.

Life is a lot like running, it’s hard to get started on a new project, job, diet, relationship, adventure — Until we let go of our egos preconceived ideas of how things should be and just let go. It’s then when we see our biggest growth.

The next time life bogs you down in molasses, just run through it! You’ll be the better for it…
