Breathe and Pavement

August 2, 2019

 Last week I ran 3 long miles for the first time in about 8 years.  Running was my passion, my meditation, my time in nature.  Living in NYC, Central Park was my backyard and my escape from the non stop frantic energy of the city.  I missed that quiet time only listening to my breathe, the sound of my feet hitting the pavement.  I  was so intimated to reenter this once familiar world.  Having  had a highly competitive mindset and always in training mode for the next marathon or the next race I was unsure that lacing up my sneakers and heading out purely for the enjoyment of this sport was possible.  So I did the only thing I could think of, I  turned to my yoga practice.  I used the tools that I have gathered over the past several years to  realign my mind to the incredible gifts that I received from running .  I am grateful everyday for the strength, humility and patience my yoga practice has given to me.  It is sometimes challenging to continue to be the person I  transform into when I am on the mat once I  step off.  Yet, I am always put at peace when I settle into that part of me, when I remember to connect to the breathe and the heart rather then the ego.  So proud to say that this yogi is now a free spirited, nature loving, recreational runner.
