Running with the Mind of Meditation.

The body benefits from movement, and the mind benefits from stillness.

I'm halfway through this book, and it's fascinating- mostly because it weaves together two major areas of my life…sport and meditation. I would have never guessed there would be so much overlap between the two, but apparently there is, and who better to describe the intersection than a Buddhist meditation master who also has nine marathons under his belt?

We've thought so long that these two activities are separate and vastly different from each other, but really that's the farthest thing from the truth. So read the book. Then drop into silence. Then lace up the shoes.
