Sunlight. Clouds. Wind. Flora. Fauna.
All lost on you.
You don’t notice any of it… You don’t appreciate it a lick.
Instead, your head is down, oblivious to everything, gearing up for your power song – Survivor, by Destiny’s Child.
Now, I get it. I really do. Despite my preference for two wheels, I still run. I understand and appreciate that zone of focus, concentration and oblivion. I too find that slipping in some earbuds and having the beat drop helps turn my feet over and keep me moving. The problem is that this isn’t a race and you’re not alone. So open your goddamned eyes and ears and pay attention.
