During my short run today I found myself completely absorbed in the present. Flow found me. My running buddy and running coach let me go ahead and for the first time since my surgery, I found myself with the possibility of running a little faster, running with a little more speed. She finished before me but there were a couple of moments during our run when I wanted to beat her. I discovered again my own competitiveness. One day, I’ll be faster but until then I’ll be patient and grateful for her showing up to run with me.
