This is what it is about! I can only run on pavement so long before I ask myself, “why am I doing this?”. Whereas, I can run in the mountains and ask myself, ” why do I need to stop?” Running is not my religion, however, I do feel that a ni
ce run through mountains while contemplating scripture, doctrine, and my testimony is a wonderful supplement to my beliefs. The headphones are a distraction, the overthought training plans are detouring, and the competitiveness with others is overrated. If I return from a run without new insight than my time was wasted… just like anything else in life!
