With that first step.
And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything.
– William Shakespeare
I was about 50 when I discovered that running is fun.
I had been running to lose weight but I found somewhere on that trail that I was enjoying it.
I soon began to look forward to each day’s run.
I began to learn some things about myself that I probably should have known. Apparently, I had pushed back several issues for decades.
Throughout this blog I will discuss each revelation in detail. Here are just three things I learned while spending time with God in the trail.
- I have ADD. This explains why running is so effective for me. It captures me. It forces me to spend this quality time with my Creator.
- I suffered from off-the-chart insecurities. These things should have been gone after high school but for me, they were the die hard kind.
- Baby, I was born to run
I have some deeply personal insights to share on this journey.
Fair warning. I don’t wish to bore you or burden you with drawn out embarrassing stuff. I simply wish to share because I’m not ashamed of this journey, and perhaps you may find a little insight about yourself by hearing some of my story.
