Sometimes it's good to get out and be alone with your thoughts, and what better way than running :) First long solo run, since canning my running partner.....I have to say it was nice to just be with me. I made a better time too:)
Running can also be spiritual. When you include the spiritual aspect into running, your running quality becomes so much more better and usually helps you gain a greater appreciation towards the little things in life that we take granted for.
