“Some people create with words, with music or with a brush and paint. I like to make something beautiful when I run.”- Steve Prefontaine (1972)

The Power of your Heart
All the true joys of running stem from the secure feeling that you’re doing the right thing in the right way. For many of us, this means restructuring or downsizing our training.
Understanding the physiological effects of positive emotions such as caring, compassion or appreciation for someone or something can actually go a long way in helping people reduce their risky training behaviors. In effect, these heart-brain interactions cohere and soften the heart which, by processing the good feelings, circulates positive information throughout the entire body. All this adds up to a heightened sensitivity to what works for us, the basic self-awareness so important to optimal health, performance and enjoyment.
