How it all started.....rewind to 2005, a new dawn and a new beginning!

This experience is
a newly discovered
form of meditation
or
one more way
for you
to discover you.

whatever you do
with your running,
you only cheat yourself
by pushing, pressing, competing.
There are no standards
and no possible victories except
the joy you are living
while dancing your run.
in any life
joy is only known
in this moment — now!

so feel the flow
of your dance
and know
you are not running
for some future reward --
the real reward is now!

in the running
in the run
--- now ---
why not start
now?

Fred Rohé, The Zen of Running, 1974

(Thank you sis Indu and my dearest friend Shanti for igniting the fire of running inside me and that flame is still burning bright!)
