As runners we have all kinds of strategies for focusing on the most efficient and enjoyable way to run successfully. Process and outcome and what have you. In my distance runs recently, I've worked to conceptualize time in ways that motivate me, and I've developed a visualization technique. I try to see three moments in my mind as if they were all happening at once: where I've been, where I am, where I am going.
|The Trails that I Adore|
|The World Before Me|
|The Metro Platform I Hated|
|Alpha, Omega, and Whatever Letter Comes in the Middle all at once.|
