Are you are going to pick up running in the new year or train to race?  Running is new for me this year and I am going to train to do a 1/2 marathon.  Now for me to go from hobby to sport,  I will need to know what I am doing in order to know where to improve.  Best place to start is with the basics.

ozziegontang's insight:

Mindful Running is meditation on the move. One way to play with present moment/only moment; or breath; or being present with each step.


In Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, he talks about mechanics working on a car with the music playing.  One cannot hear the subtle sounds that silence allows one to hear.


So for me I listen to my breath, my footsteps, my movement of arms, legs, torso, watching for what self-talk invades my run.  All those subtle cues that I would never hear or be aware of with ear buds blocking out me being present, awake, aware and running intentionally.

The mind reflects the body reflects the mind.  I run or walk as part of my meditative practice.  The rhythm of my steps, the breathing rhythms and patterns, allow me to be present and in the moment. I get to see where my body is. I find it easy to quiet my thinking after a run.
