This video was inspired by the the first 5K race I ran. In it I discuss my observations about running, pacing yourself, and the importance of paying attention to our energy levels every day. Some days we feel very energetic. We feel we want to be active, ougoing and ready to get physical things done. Other days we wake up feeling softer, or more introspective or like we need to rest. Honoring our own pace helps us also honor our health and to listen to our bodies. When we pay attention to those messages from our body, we develop inner guidance and can slow down to find the gifts, the introspection, the insights or the creativity that is waiting for us on the other side of our slowing down.
