I went for a run early last Friday. It had been over a week since I last worked out, and halfway through I was getting tired. I heard the little voice in the back of my head tugging at me to slow down; to take a short cut. It would have been so easy to listen to it; to convince myself that it would be OK to take it easy... it's not like anyone would know.
Instead of slowing down, I just kept listening to this little voice as I ran. Still tired, I kept running and eventually the little voice drifted away into nothing, and an understanding of what had just happened started coming to me. It was at this point that I DID stop to let these words flow through:
...and then I finished my run :-)
