Surrender to the Flow

You know that moment in a run when you are basically in cruise control?  You don't have to think.  You just run.  

I love that moment.

It always makes me think of one of my favorite Phish songs, The Lizards.  There's a line in the song that goes:

"The trick was to surrender to the flow..."

Sometimes I'm in that flow and yet I don't want to surrender to it.  Maybe it's too fast, maybe it's too slow.  But today I totally surrendered to it.  I simply ran and didn't worry about pace.  I was in tune with my breathing and my footsteps.   The weather was perfect, I was pain free, and I surrendered to the flow.  I ran happy and loved every minute of it.  

I bet you didn't know that I was such a hippie.  For the record, I've been to over 30 Phish shows with my husband.  We love them.  You should too.

Belle was kind of snobby after my run.  I think she was mad that she can't run yet.  I keep telling her that she needs to let her body grow but she wasn't having any of it.

I also made another yummy salad for lunch today.  I was super fancy and cut my carrots with my teeth.  Because that's how we do it in Collierville.  Just keeping it classy.

Do you struggle with surrendering to the flow?
