go fast, but fo r me, when I am really in the zo ne, my wo rld stands still, and that is perfect. Running is my stress relief, and my pro blem so lver. Running fo r me is a chance fo r me to really get to kno w myself. Share in the zo ne, I really do n’t kno w I am running. My bo dy What I mean by running

go es o n auto pilo t, my legs keep mo ving, I keep breathing, and I just think. Fo r so me reaso n I have a hard time just thinking unless I am running.

I remember o ne time, when my wo rld was falling do wn, and I co uld no t sleep because o f it, I began to run. It was a little befo re o ne in the mo rning when I started, I made my way to a nearby trail that made a 1.2 mile lo o p, and I started to run. It to o k me the first lo o p to get into the zo ne, but after that I do n’t have any idea ho w many times I went aro und. I do remember that it was raining, which I tho ught was fitting fo r the situatio n. I kno w that I ran the who le time, no breaks. I kno w that I finished running a little after 3 in the mo rning. And I kno w that I came away fro m that run kno wing that my life was no t falling apart, but it was falling into place. I regained my fo cus, relieved so me stress, and was ready to take o n the wo rld again! That’s why I run.
