84 | My Run With God
I have NEVER been a runner in the past, but I am shifting into being one. Today as I ran I knew that my thoughts would determine if it was really hard or if it was ok. My last run, 2 days ago, was NOT great ... I was so focused on my knee pain that I was limping the next day, still focusing on the pain, so today, I knew I needed to shift my focus into a different spot. I was sort of planning on a miracle to get me through the run. So as I ran today, I imagined each step I took, each time my foot landed on the ground, I pictured it landing on a cloud or in "Universe" space and as I stepped down on the sidewalk I pictured the enveloping arms of God catching me. It sounds cheesy, but that visualization put me into a mental state of FLOW and the run was awesome. My knees didn't hurt, my lungs didn't burn, my hips carried me easily ... it WAS a miracle.
