Good Karma, Bad Karma

To different minds, the same world is a hell or a heaven." - Ralph Waldo Emerson 
When the karma is good the running is good.

For instance, whenever I am on vacation I seem to run better.  Is it because I am well rested?  Probably.  But another part of it is karma.  Being away from knife wielding workmates is like stripping the shackles from my feet.

There is a type of people I like to call "Black Clouds".  Their glass is always half empty and they see nothing but doom ahead.  They will try and drag you down into their dark, depressing world whenever they can.

Want to improve your running?  Surround yourself with nut job runners.  They are on the whole a very positive, upbeat bunch and will take you to mental heights usually reserved for angels and mental patients.

Lighter mind, lighter feet.

  2. So is it official? Are you Shiva the Black Cloud? I could make one hell of a t-shirt design out of that one.

  3. You may have something there!

  4. Into the t-shirt laboratory I go. I will not come out until the perfect dark cloud t-shirt has been created. Beware all of Shiva the Black Cloud.
