On
occasion, I enjoy posting quotes from real women runners. Whether barely a
beginner, an experienced elite, or any level in between, all of us gals are
bound together by the common themes of our running experience.

 

 

Running means
everything to me. I find trail running to be the best form of meditation. My
church is the outdoors and I try to get there daily. I never listen to music
when I run; I find it too distracting. Running is a perfect time for me to
listen to my breathing and the sounds of the outdoors. I think about how
thankful I am for my health, my body and my mind. And if I’m lucky, I think
about nothing at all. – Cindy, 34
