Thank you for writing about this. I have been running for over two years and find it to be so much more than a fitness session. Though admittedly that’s why I started.
There’s a meditative aspect to it for me too. I would go out with a cloudy or noisy mind only to return completely refreshed and thinking more clearly.
I had a weak knee that soon cleared up once running strengthened my leg.
Running improves my mood and my creative thinking. Writing ideas come to me when I run.
I revisit mistakes and how I could have handled things better.
Running — some of the best medicine around.
