The Soul


‘There is something magical about running; after a certain distance it transcends the body. Then a bit further, it transcends the mind. A bit further yet, and what you have before you, laid bare, is the soul.’
~ Kristin Armstrong

Excited to be back home today after a gnarly 12 hour solo drive in high winds yesterday (California Route 5- 1, Jen-0). My hamstrings feel like I ran two marathons yesterday from that drive 🏃‍♀️🚘🏹

And weirdly, my soul does as well with all the things I released along that loooooooooong stretch of highway that laid bare my soul in all the right ways.

Once I accepted what the drive was going to be, I got into a zone that made a difficult situation truly magical.

Amazing how training the body prepares us for SO much more BEYOND the body 😉

So excited to ground back home today, sit down to finalize my training & business plans for the next few months, rest for a big long run tomorrow & talk with my love about all the big realizations & soul stirrings that occurred on my trip up the coast this week.

That soul laid bare part? Might be the best description of my 2019 so far 🔥
