If you are running with the overstride that this image shows, any long distance would end up somewhere down the road with knee or hip replacement therapy.

Mindful Running: A Practice & A Journey

Mindful Running: A Practice & A Journey | Integrative Medicine | Scoop.it

Ozzie Gontang:


These were some of my reflections back in 1998 first titled: Thoughts on Running Observing Thoughts 


"To begin the journey of mindful running we will observe. In this journey it will be a path which allows you to observe yourself and others. It is a road which allows you to teach and be taught. It is a sojourn which will give you points of observation with which to play. The direction is one of atavism. It is an ancestral throwback. It is a recurrence of animal homo erectus’ ability to run after its prey or to run away from its predator. While there is the story of the Fall of Adam and Eve, we will be focusing on man’s first fall and how it has effected our inability to run mindfully."

Kim Smith-Beauty of Mindful Running

Published on Aug 26, 2012 by MindfulnessInSloMo
A great watch of the beauty of graceful running. Running is falling and catching oneself gracefully. You can run gracefully or clumsily. Go for the Grace! The slow motion shows the smoothness of the running. The regular speed shows the quick cadence and the ball/heel touch of the foot only on the surface of the earth.
