2020.03.25 - Trust the miles

randy freepLast night I escaped the COVID 19 world for a bit as I was transported to the front of the pack of the 2010 Western States 100 Mile Endurance Run by watching the movie "Unbreakable", on youtube.com. Upbeat, motivational movies and books can change a negative thought pattern to one of hope and wonder. Seeing what the human spirit is capable of might give us the push needed to reach our potential. Vegan athletes, the best long distance runners in the world, who run 150 to 200 mile weeks up and down mountains, alone in the wilderness, have incredible insight, not unlike cloistered monks or gurus, and they share them in this movie. A common thread was leaving structured training behind and trusting long hard miles with thousands of feet of climb on rocky rooted trails, letting the run teach us the way.


Let's use this time to grow,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner on life's journey.
