Finishing a good run is exhilaration.

In fact, having just arrived back from one, I feel renewed, empowered, and charged with positive energy. Proven to be an excellent outlet for stubborn frustration, exercise lets you sweat out the negativity and testifies to your ability to go forth with purpose.

A decision I’ve found invaluable is giving up earphones. Find fulfillment in the environment, run to your own beat, be part of the surrounding, and use your own internal reserves of motivation to propel you rather than depending on external sources.

Of course, music can be great, but give independence a chance and you’ll find the most rewarding feeling of self-sufficiency!

So discover reward in hard work, in the discipline to do what will end in well-earned triumph.
