I would not consider myself a religious person, but I would consider myself a spiritual person. I do not regularly attend church, but I certainly am a believer. Last week I wrote a post about not listeningto music when I run. I told you how I like to listen to my surrounds and take in the people around me.
While I was running yesterday, I thought some more about why I run and how it makes me feel. When I run, I feel more in tune with my body. Not only do I feel more in tune with my body, but also with my mind. When I have an important decision to make or feel overly stressed, I go for a run and can think clearly. I can sort things out easier. I can simplify things. I guess that is what they call a runner’s high.
When I am running and working my body hard, I feel more spiritual. I feel more spiritual when running than I ever have in church. I feel closer to God when running. I have moments of clarity when I am running like I have never experienced before. I think running clears my head and lets what was always there shine through.
Have you ever experienced anything like this while running? Do you feel like your mind opens up?
