While I am idle, traveling, I am wondering.
Running is so much more than numbers defined.
It’s about the process. The thing that started out as a way to get consistent with my morning routine. So that I can bring my health in good shape. I found running convincing to me.
As I set my eyes and the legs to run 42k, I have come a long way. The thing has progressed from being a health measure to being a hobby.
And it’s bloody a great hobby!! It helps you grow in all walks of life. My work, my personal life and my vision for my future have seen a total shift in a direction of immense possibilities.
*First, work* : work is no more a monotony. The endorphin high that I get first thing in the morning sets me on fire. While driving to work, I feel raring to go with my day. Almost, the whole day priorities are played out in that half an hour drive.
So, when I am there at my desk, I know what to focus on… Like, am I running a 5k or 10k or 21k..and I move along the same attitude. I stay calm, composed and energetic through out.
_My energy levels in the morning an dthe evening are found to be almost same._
My personal and social relationships: oh gosh!! This part you should know. I was so short tempered a guy.. Of late, since I have started running.. More precisely in the last 2 years, I am more in control of my emotions.
When some one double crosses, I know I need to keep my emotions in place. I know, when I am supposed to get defensive or offensive. Or just plain neutral… And these flow towards some kind of creative outcome… So, I would get irate to a level that others can take!!
I am not really upset with anyone.. I know the objectivity of the talks..
I can say, I am happy with myself and I fins that people are struggling with themselves.. This gives me a big gratitude attitude towards others….!!
And for personal vision : I am doing so much. I started this website. I am running towards getting it to 100 posts. Once that is done, I will edit them and rewrite them to get it more readable.
Post my running 42k, I will be helping others to learn a little more about running. Ans there is a whole series of things that I have laid out. Books, podcasts, talks etc.
My life is looking to be moving in a direction of light ans hope.
I am more in sync with the work, the people and my own self now than ever before.
