11 miles on Turkey Mountain in Tulsa. Progression of pics below will welcome you to my local world of trail running. After the past couple of weeks I was looking forward to today. I decided I would try not to pay attention to my watch or how fast I could go. I decided I would feel it out. It wasn't easy. "I want to look at my watch" I would think as I ran, "I want to push the pace" I thought, I "want to see how fast I can go" I thought. I thought I "wanted" it. Those thoughts were just flashes. Most of the time I thought how good it felt to just go with how it feels. To have no expectations and be pleasantly surprised by whatever. After I ran, I realized when I was thinking "I want", I really meant "I need". Needing is different than wanting. Time to refocus, to let go of "needing" so I can keep that joy that running and exploring my limits gives me. Enjoy the pics!
