I have started running. I am training for a 5K.
When I run, I am anyone.
Married or not, single or not, widowed or not.
It is good to look up when I run. There's more to life than the sidewalk.
I'm following a training program, Couch to 5K. As I run, I listen to my playlist of choice (which varies schizophrenically from loud, angry music to transporting, worshipful praise songs - and sometimes a blend of both), and a voice tells me when to change my pace for the training of the day.
"Begin warm up."
"One minute left."
"Begin Cool Down."
It's pretty encouraging to have this voice telling me what's coming next, where I am on the journey, and where to focus my energies.
I'm wishing to expand this to other areas.
"You are halfway."
"Let that one go. Now."
(Is there an app for that?)
