Fuji 5Lakes Training Blog - 11.5.2017 - The "Post-Poison 6 Mile" and Running as My Path to Serenity
I took this photo mid-run tonight by the Agano river.
After going out drinking and overdoing it a bit with a friend last night, I had to get back on the path and renew my vision and focus today.
I have been experiencing feelings of deep discontent, self-doubt, and fear recently.
Running helps me to conquer all of those. Feeling revived and refreshed now.
Tonight I ran with my ambient music playlist, got a lot of new ideas while running, and felt some deep emotions bubble to the surface. I'm glad I chose to go out and go for it, even in my somewhat compromised state today. Fresh air and the sunset, and getting my body moving did me good.
I'll be officially signing up for the Fuji 5Lakes Ultramarathon soon, and am feeling pumped. Early signups get a sweet North Face bag as well! Gotta get in on that.
