When I run I feel strong.
When I run I feel strong mentally and physically.
When I run I feel like I am a badass.
When I run my shoulders are back, my head is held high, my gaze is up and forward,
I feel invincible.
I am to the point now where I can run farther because my lungs and legs let me.
Sometimes my body wants to give up.
There are times when my body thinks I’m tired or when my body doesn’t feel like doing the mileage.
When my body wants to give up, my mind takes over.
When my body wants to stop, my mind takes inventory of my body and tells it whether it needs to stop or whether it wants to quit.
I’ve come to realize that mind over matter is a real thing.
