Pos­i­tive split

Runner's World (UK) - - Human Race -

I en­joyed Break on Through (RW, Oct), par­tic­u­larly the ad­vice to ‘em­brace pos­i­tiv­ity’. Run­ning had never ap­pealed to me and previous half-hearted at­tempts had failed. But af­ter months of re­cov­er­ing from a virus, I started to run. I’m not sure why. I think I wanted to feel my body work­ing again, while con­nect­ing with the out­doors. One evening I was over­whelmed by a feel­ing of thank­ful­ness for what my body could do. I can re­late to Kaitlin Good­man’s mantra of ‘run­ning joy­fully’. It is in­deed a gift, not a chore.
