Chilled hard today so the legs can run fast tomorrow, recovery is important! And so is enjoying the little things in life like perfectly sunny days where you get to run with friends, spike up for some strides, and then sit outside and roll out by the track while you catch some rays 😎🌞 Now my heart is full and happy so my legs are ready for a good track session tomorrow πŸ¦πŸƒπŸ½β€β™€οΈ

I didn’t celebrate Easter in a traditional way this year. On Easter we went for a run in Cali before traveling back to South Carolina (hang with me, this all relates back to Easter I promise). We went to a place we had never gone before and at the start it was NOT a good running spot. We thought we had gone somewhere with soft surface but the run started off on a hard concrete path in a swampy area right next to a highway. We kept jogging and I saw a rocky path off to the left. I was pretty tired of running on concrete so I decided to take a chance and swing a left to the rocky road. The road was worse than the concrete. It was uneven and the scene around me was still muggy and swamp like but for some reason I decided to keep running on the path. After a couple of minutes the path became smoother and the swamp became two little streams to the side of the path. A couple more minutes and the path became a softer dirt surface and the streams had turned to less muddy rivers beside me. Farther down the path the surface turned to white packed down sand, a perfect running surface, and I realized I was running right on the bay. Blue water surrounded me on both sides and beautiful bright yellow flowers were sprouting up on islands of land in the water. California mountains were faded in the background against the blue sky, the sun was shining down without a cloud in the sky to hold it back, and the air offered a cool breeze to push me along. Seagulls flew peacefully in the air and the only sound I heard was the shuffling of my feet, my breath, water splashing in the bay, and birds chirping in the air. It was as if everything on this Easter Sunday was working in unison to worship The One who gave us everything- the flowers yelling their vibrant color, the birds singing His praise, the mountains reaching up to the heavens, the wind whispering his glory, and I was a part of it too, worshiping in dumbfounded awe of the beauty He created and using my body to do what He created me to do- run. Then I realized something else: this whole run was a parallel to my relationship with Him. (Cont. in comments)

Great weekend in Cali with these peeps! Pumped to finallyyyy walk (or run) away with a good 30 second PR after a couple years filled with setbacks and injuries. It hasn’t been easy to get back into PR shape and I’m thankful for all the people around me who believe in me and are a constant source of support and encouragement, I definitely couldn’t and didn’t do this alone! Excited to keep putting in the work and get even stronger and faster this season!

β€œDo you know that story about the Russian cosmonaut?/ So, he goes up in this big spaceship / And he's got this portal window/ And he's looking out of it/ And he sees the curvature of the Earth for the first time/ And all of a sudden, this strange ticking/ And it's coming out of the dashboard/ But he can't find it, he can't stop it/ It keeps going/ A few hours into this, begins to feel like torture/ What's he gonna do?/ He's up in space!/ So the cosmonaut decides/ The only way to save his sanity/ Is to fall in love with this sound”- Odesza, Intro, A Moment Apart ... β€’
These lyrics are how I feel about running sometimes. Sometimes I start off a long run or workout hearing my footsteps one after the other and thinking about how long I have left to run, how much it hurts, how much longer I have to focus for, how much of a grind it is, doubting if I can finish the workout etc. But if I decide to save my sanity, something happens. I start listening to the beat of my footsteps and they become a rhythm- I start loving them. The grind isn’t a grind anymore; it’s a beautiful song, a dance, and I’m moving with it. I’ve fallen in love with the sounds.
