A few weeks ago I headed out with my Nikon SLR to take some photos in a field next to my house. The reason I did was that every day when walking the dog in this field I become more aware of the detail within it. What was once ‘just a sheep field’ has become a whole world where the detail is incredibly beautiful.
I have found that being aware of the details and beauty, no matter how small, is a tremendous inspiration and motivator for running trails and pushing myself to run ultras.
Next time you think you are just running across ‘just a field’ take a moment to notice the detail around you. I promise it’ll put a spring in your step and a smile on your face.
