So Hum. An Ode to My First Trail Run.

I am aware of the breath inside my lungs that screams with each step I take forward.

I am grateful for the trees that embrace me as I begin to question why I am here.

I am addicted to the Earth beneath my feet that grounds me to my body.

I am small compared to the forces at play.

I am at the mercy of Mother Nature's energy.

I am strong.

I am connected.

I am present.

I am.

So hum.
