Sometimes I run for fitness. Today I ran in search of clarity.
Life throws many difficulties in your path and running can offer time to reflect on them and try to resolve the myriad competing thoughts and noise; like finding a moving lane through a traffic jam.
15 miles was not enough distance to mull it all over but I certainly feel better about things. Getting too close and caught up in life’s minutiae but forgetting to enjoy the bigger more important things in life is easy to slip into. But rise above it we must.
On a more technical note, my HeartRate Monitor only seemed to capture half of my run today and I’m not sure what is causing the dropouts. I wonder if the battery needs to be replaced? It certainly can’t be a proximity thing as the devices are never more than a foot apart.
I saw one of my work colleagues out on his bike this morning too. It’s always good to see a friendly face while you are out there!
