I can't even describe how this place has changed my perspective on running. From my collegiate training camps with Queens University to my new life here in the mountains, I have always been fond of this part of the country. This place leaves no lack of inspiration. Right now the trees are beautifully painted with vibrant colors that light a fire in me. My favorite type of run has always been the runs that start with a cold breath of frosty air on an overcast day while I am listening to The Devil and God are Raging Inside Me by Brand New. I cant quite put a finger on how this place makes me feel but I will say for me, right now, this is where I need to be. Of course there are downsides to every situation. I can't stand how long it takes to drive into town and I have never been a big fan of running hills, but I definitely understand the importance that they can play in my development.
One of the upsides to the situation is the amount of free time to finally study the word of God as much as I'd like, as well as pick back up the activities I have neglected such as bettering my guitar playing skills. I am trying to work on my singing skills, but so far I am still at the same terrible place my voice has always been. Karaoke night went horribly last week. But hey, at least I tried.
