I was out for a run this weekend and could hardly even see the trail for all the yellow, purple, red and brown leaves scattered about. It is really a good wake up call to take a look at the beauty around us. Technology has given us some great advancements in running with the GPS, Nike+, Heart rate monitors and others.
It is easy to get caught up watching what is on your wrist and not at what is around you. I suggest that from time to time just look up. I have really been enjoying some of my runs recently where I leave everything to track my progress at home and just enjoy the run.
Take in the beauty of God’s creation which is easy to do this time of the year. For a minute forget your PR, your pace, your time and your mileage. Just run and enjoy it. Change it up some and get out with the nature God created it. Thats how you were created to run.
Enjoy the run!
