When running in the woods, appreciate each step!

When running in the woods, even at full speed, appreciate each step. Don’t be in a hurry when charging ahead at full tilt. Whirring by trees, flying over rocks and roots, feel the fluidity in your stride. Welcome the quickened heartbeat, heaving breath, sweat and burning muscles. Embrace hard effort and be rewarded with incredible momentum. Go on courageously, never losing sight of what’s underfoot and all that surrounds you. You can not be anywhere apart from where you are in each moment of the journey. Every footfall along the way is vital!
