Running Unplugged

Last night I went for my second outdoor run of the year and I decided to leave my headphones at home. Being connected all day, it felt good to listen to my mind, body, and surroundings.

I could hear my feet hitting the pavement and my breating.

I could feel my heat beating.

My mind felt relaxed and I just let it wander.

I was able to take in the sounds of the city and of nature.

I am going to make running “unplugged” a habit.
