Since those early days, just a few years ago, when I first stepped onto a treadmill, running has always been more than the physical act. It’s about movement, physically and mentally. It’s about growth and learning; about opening up to new possibilities. During each endeavor, unplanned, unexpected moments confront me through challenges and through welcome sights. This is the real adventure: planning out all I possibly can, then letting go and being open to what is.
