Oh the Places You'll Go

November 11, 2018

"You have brains is your head, you have feet in your shoes.  You can steer yourself any direction you choose."

         -Dr. Suess "Oh, the Places You'll Go"

 

Running comes with many benefits.  Health, fitness, mental decluttering, alone time, running buddies, the list goes on.  However, one of my favorite benefits of running is the ability to explore the world around me.

 

This exploration can come in many forms.  When I travel to a new city I love to go to my hotel room, change, and head out to run around.  Not only does it shake out my plane legs, it lets me check out the sights, and scope out resturants for dinner.  When I moved across the country, it allowed me to get to know my new home on a different level.  It lets me cover more trails in the same amount of time, and make my way out to points that others couldn't reach in a single day's journey.  It even carried me across the Grand Canyon and back in one day.

 

Sometimes I hear the criticism that runners should slow down and enjoy themselves.  However, I find running to be the perfect pace.  You see more than if you were walking or hiking for the same amount of time, but you're going slower than you would if you were biking or driving.  Plus, there's nothing stopping you from taking a breaks and soaking in the surroundings.

 

So, my challenge for you is to use your running to explore the world around you.  Maybe it's travelling to a destination race, maybe it's exploring far-flung corners of nature, or maybe it's seeing your town from a new perspective.

 

You may just be surprised by what you see and where you go.
