Take back the run

September 22, 2014

As a runner this was such a powerful message...

As a woman who loves running, it was a chilling reminder to be aware of my surroundings as I head out to find my happy pace!


We interpret actions of others based on our own experiences, which is how we predict what will happen around us. When your mind neglects to think like others, you expose yourself to hidden dangers.


Not all of my runs are alone, but when they are, I need to be observant and prepared.  There are distracted drivers, cross walks without adequate crossing time, and knowing you need to protect yourself. Being immersed in my surroundings has been a huge part of my running enjoyment. No longer lost with headphones exploding to the beat,  I view the world that surrounds me. With my mind clear it is like a reboot to cleanse my soul and start the day fresh.


This race was a powerful message for women, for runners and for me. I am thankful I was able to attend and my husband was able to support me in this run!
