"I have heard of many going astray even in the village streets, when the darkness was so thick you could cut it with a knife, as the saying is..." - Henry David Thoreau ◾
For those who deal with depression and its many variations and compounded contributions, after some time there is a clear understanding that it, or the absence of the perception of happiness, is far more complex than direct correlations to traumas, money, love, education, notoriety, intelligence, family or the lack thereof, and on and on. ◾
As well, in those cases where there is a patterned vacillation; signs, symptoms, triggers become very evident like some familiar person you really don't care for much, with an aggressive ill-trained dog that lunges at you daily during your run. ◾
But we learn about ourselves and about everything that plays into us and who we are and we find our way through, out and back. This is a part of the reason I am a supporter of RunFar. There are many veterans who suffer from PTSD and depression in a far more intense and accute manner than what I've experienced for a lifetime. ◾
And these men and women commit suicide, leaving behind children who need support. This help is the mission of @runfar_official / www.run-far.org (link in my bio) through the Sergeant Sean Northcutt Scholarship. Please visit, learn more about the organization and if your heart says so, please help by direct donation or buying some gear. 🇺🇸 Oh yeah, I ran 6 miles today and didn't want to take the phone. It wasn't an enjoyable one, and I wasn't wearing a shirt or hat because it's very warm here and less just feels better. Today was a day to learn from. Tomorrow will be a new one and an opportunity to live with a bit more quality. ◾
since i never post any non-running photos and a bunch of my coworkers told me i looked cute, here’s a little non-sweaty selfie for ya humpday 🐪✨🌻😊
"We live in an 'instant' society, with instant fast food, instant diets (to lose the weight gained from the instant food), instant Internet, instant cell phones, pagers, email, and 24-hour news. That outlook sometimes filters down to running. There are, however, no instant results in running. Seeking instant success typically leads to disaster. Better to steadily put in your long runs and look for far-off improvement. In fact, if you did nothing but long runs you would improve and be more likely to stay injury free. Our sport is a patient, long, and drawn-out affair that requires, above all – more than talent, altitude, or a new pair of shoes – determination, dedication, and discipline." – Michael Sandrock, Running Tough

Post-run feels 🙃☺️
I don’t know if there’s a name for this stretch, or even a legit purpose - it just feels sooo good .
Today’s 20min tempo had me done at 10mins in - a decent effort at RunClub last night, and a high HR walking out the front gate, I knew it was going to be a tough one. .
But it’s done 😁👊
👟If it doesn't CHALLENGE you, it doesn't CHANGE you🔝💯🏁⚡️
