What is Mojo? An inner strength? Inner spirit? Fight? Desire? The want or need to fulfill, and going after it. Feeling good, and not being afraid. Taping into that special glow from within.
Finding that spark is sometimes hard to do. Sometimes we have it, and other times we don’t.
What do you do to find that spirit? To show the world and yourself that you run with a purpose?
Sometimes I run, and it’s just a run. Other times, I find myself in another world. When the planets align, and the body feels good, the mind is sharp, who knows what can happen. We humans can achieve greatness. Look at Meb. Hard fought, and effort galore, he brings home the Boston Marathon to the U.S. for the first time in 31 years. Yeah, of course we have to have ability. What is really comes down to is one thing, I think. Desire. (Mojo)
We all run at different speeds, different abilities and different goals. What we share, however, is that inner spark. That thing that gets us out on the road, or trail or to the gym. Whether your goal is to win the Boston Marathon, or just to get there, or to get off the couch and run that first mile, we all need mojo.
I’ve felt my Mojo returning after a few weeks of recovery, and it feels so good. The legs want to run, the mind is ready for that high. I’ve tapped into it again, and am running happy. Running proud, and running strong.
Please excuse me, my running shoes are calling….
