The White Horse

"Injuries began to slow him as he closed in on 40, but he eventually viewed these annoyances as a liberation. He started to care less about piling on the megamileage and more about finding challenging trails. Running was an exploration, inside and out, endorphins feeding his cerebral bliss."

Read the rest of the article about Micah True, ultra-runner and free-spirit.
If only we all had the ability to enjoy life this gently.
I read his attitude towards his injuries as his graceful allowance for his own limitations without being hemmed in by then...another example of that 'calm acceptance' of life in an uncertain world.
I strive to emulate that kind of grace in my own endeavours..
