16 Miles of Gratitude | Running Motivation

16 miles of gratitude today. Beginning with lacing my sneakers under the moon, and allowing the rise of the sun to greet me.

Yes, it’s ordinary. Yes, it’s sometimes repetitive and painful. No, it’s not for everyone. But does it matter?

Yes, it does. Your habits, your determination, your drive to not just exist but truly live matters.

These roads have been the solid ground of some of my best and worst days.

They have listened, and absorbed tears of joy, fear, happiness, and displacement… but above all, they have given me back the hope that was lost, and the faith I need to see.

Here is my purpose, and mailbox to mailbox… my heart is full.
