I have lost track of how many runs I have had this year.
I knew that would happen.
I don’t remember to take pictures every time. And, well, if you read the last post, I had some difficulty there for awhile.
But now I have my new Brooks shoes and I was, kinda, ready to get back in the game.
I was super scared to see what my muscles would say.
Well, my muscles said, “what took you so long!”
It was a wonderful run.
And a beautiful day.
Then I ran in to THIS in the park.
I have done musical improv for the last ten years of my life. It has been one of my greatest loves, one of my favorite things to do, and I can not believe that this is just sitting in a park I have been running in for 4 years.
“Yes, And..” is an improv philosophy.
In improv, the number one rule is to accept any offer that your fellow improvisers hand you; “Yes.”
And once you have accepted their offer, you add your offer to it; “And….”
And so on and so on and so on….
That is how you construct an improv scene.
And, like so many things in life, this can absolutely be applied to a run.
“Yes,” I will get out of the house “and” I will go for a run.
But I’m tired…..
“Yes,” I will get out of the house “and” go for a run.
It may be difficult…..
“Yes, and” you will get through it. You are strong.
I am strong.
And I am back again.
