As part of my mental training for the marathon, I’ve been looking for reasons why I run. It’s no shock that one of these reasons is to be outdoors enjoying the scenery around me, but I’ve realised the scene I get most captivated by is the path ahead of me. Whether it’s a beautiful country lane or a derelict urban street, something about the way a path leads into the distance is enchanting.
I’ve found evidence of this in my photo album, so I’m sharing a few reminders of the amazing places I’ve run in aid of invoking that great optimism felt by running into a beautiful scene.
The path ahead reveals unexpected beauty in the heart of a city
The path ahead makes you want to run like a carefree child
The path ahead is iconic, like you’re running into history or a movie scene
The path ahead smacks you with urban vibrancy
The path ahead is rarely bad when it is basked in sunshine
The path ahead isn’t always obvious 😉
