....I jog walked 26.25 miles today. I saw a green frog and thousands of baby crabs. I saw the 2 old people I always see. I passed a man several times who appeared to be doing the same thing I was doing.
But the real deal was the mental. It took about 15 miles for me to remember transcendence. I'm not out there doing miles for training. I don't need to think about work or Boston or various resentments I have. I let go and tried to just do miles and I switched my mind to spirit mode.
Around 20 miles I began to struggle. Now my left foot hurts. It is getting warm. How much is enough? When should I stop? I need a mind that can hang in there; maintaining forward motion at whatever speed. As I passed my car at 22.5 miles, I kept going. Just do'in it. I looped around at the far end of the course so that the next time I got to the car, I'd be done.
I have no agenda as a runner. I'm not in solidarity with anyone. I'm not charitable.
I am spirit. Grace means most to me. And so, I turn my work issue over to God and let the outcome be what it is.
