My training of today, Londrina, Paraná, Brazil.
A gap between my last writing and my return to the daydreams around the experience of running to beyond physical activity.
After a sabbatical year, recovering from a foot injury, I return to training for a new marathon, with a new body and a new focus.
I bring within me the foundations of the first texts, but with a march less in each step … slow pace, careful redoubled, to continue to run, without limits, step by step, in a mismatch of the frantic life of my day to day.
In the slowness of my movement, I still bring the practice of yoga, tai chi, conscious breaths. I perceive the environment around me more clearly, making my running become a rediscovery of life itself.
In an autobiographical sense, I retake my traces, replay the videos, silence and sounds of Chris Lynn and other inspirational sources as a way to extravasate what exists in a body with an affected sensitivity, that moves from one side to another, in a direction random, running adrift, discovering the path precisely … at every conscious step.
*I am training for my 6th Marathon, in June, Porto Alegre, Brazil.
