You’ll have to forgive me as I cannot for the life of me remember where I saw this inspirational picture and caption and who posted it, but it went something like this: “We run because it’s the closest we humans come to flying.”
This idea reminded me of how every photo of our boy running, he is always in mid air!
I was thinking about this on my last couple runs. When I did think about it, I found that I subconsciously elevated my posture to run ‘lighter’ and my pace quickened.
I realized this idea is right. When we run, we probably spend more time in the air than we do on the ground. As we fly along, our feet are merely tapping the Earth.
How bout you? When you run, do you ever feel like your flying? Do you ever think about your feet just lightly tapping the Earth as you go?
