Running in the Slow Lane.
‘What is life if full of care,we have not time to stand and stare?’William Henry Davies
This is me.
Hello. My name is Ruth and I started running to improve my fitness levels six years ago. I found so much more: beauty, nature, connections, spirituality….
Running energises and empowers on a daily basis. It provides freedon, expression and a place to think. It has made me more observant and in tune to the landscape and the world around me.
Am I really a runner? Some would say not. I run to slow down. I run in the slow lane. Running to slow down? That’s right. This world moves so fast or so it seems and sometimes we feel caught on the ever-spinning ride. Our minds are full; our bodies are weighed down- our hearts beat too fast.
To run slows the heart, lightens the mood, opposes the stresses of the day.
I run to observe, to think ,to thank … to live!
