Today’s post is sponsored by awe. Awe at my surroundings. Awe at my loved ones. Awe at nature. But mainly awe at the human body. It is such a great and powerful thing, and I think it deserves a round of applause.
I was out running today (something I have unexpectedly become quite attached to) and this wave of emotion came over me. There I was, jogging along, without stopping, for some time. These limbs were rotating and bending a long, without complaint. The human body is an amazing thing, and what it can accomplish is even more inspiring. For possibly the first time ever, I felt proud of my body, and it’s capability. It’s willingness to keep going, keeping my legs moving, arms swinging, heart beating.
I want to do a marathon this year. Something which is pretty ambitious (super ambitious for me!) but I really want to do one. I’m starting to get into running a lot more, and would like to set myself a goal, an aim of achievement! I applied to the NY Marathon, but unfortunately didn’t get a place. My Mum on the other hand, got one. WOOHOOOO, go mumma! I encouraged her to sign up with me, so feel a little bad I won’t be running along side her. I will, however, be cheering my heart out from the sidelines. Plus, I’m not going to complain about a holiday to New York now, am I?| | | Next → |
