This guy at the gym asks me the other day, “Where do you go when you run?” I am confused because I run right next to him on the same treadmill, morning after morning or shall I say, crack of dawn after crack of dawn. I look at him puzzled by the question. He says, “I mean you stare off into space.”
I just smile, nod my head and keep running but in my mind I am thinking about the question. Where do I go? I go running- away from my stress, away from any pains and away from my never ending “to do” list. I run forward into the unknown future. I look ahead with an open mindset. I move my body as if this is the only chance I have to give to myself today. Where do I run? I run into a meditative state of bliss!
