Stop watching your watch.
After running for quite a few years you might think that I am used to seeing all the normal sites. But I hope I never lose the enjoyment of seeing all those little things that can make the difference in a training run. We all know that no every run - well, at least once you have children - can happen in the middle of a forested Eden. Many training runs have to happen along a road. Sometimes a road that has more traffic then a Zen place would allow. But even on those runs when the noise is not of breezes and cows mooing and the sights are maybe a little harder to see, I hope that you can take the time to enjoy those small things that cross you path or rather you cross theirs.
In case you are finding it hard to notice them here are just a few.
Have you been noticing more than just your pace and heart rate?
I challenge you to find at least one amazing thing in nature on every run you take.
Share your findings here by linking up on Thursdays Things.
