The pure joy of running

I’ve always loved the pure joy of running. And I discovered my freshman year, as a first-time cross-country runner, that this activity came naturally to me.

My parents often took me running around the foothills of Golden, Colorado, when I was younger. But when I got into high school, it seemed like many people worried about running injuries. Stress fractures, shin splints—you name it. As a Christian Scientist, I find that it’s a great comfort knowing the truth about my relationship with a caring and loving God. Running to me is a strong expression of spiritual qualities, especially freedom and joy. When I take this to heart, there is no room for common jogging theories and anxieties.
