For the love of lonnnnnnnnggg runs!!!

emoticon emoticon emoticon I emoticon LONG runs!!!!!! emoticon
I love the meditative aspect to them...I have my most intense times with the Lord when on long runs. Problems are put into perspective, solutions are very clear, and peace settles into my heart.
I love the moments of solitude during my long runs There is something peaceful about enjoying the scenery listening to the sounds around you while you run.
I love the challenge of the long runs.. I like knowing that I could master a distance that at one time was unfathomable. emoticon

    Good for you! I am trying to learn to love longer runs, but it's taking some time!

    I miss running :( I remember feeling free when out running, like I could go anywhere that I wanted, so long as time permitted of course!

    Awesome! I feel the same way about my long runs. It's the most productive way I can think of to spend "me" time. Few other moments in my life make me feel as productive and proud as the long run. Great job and keep moving forward!
