“You get up and run every morning as the sun is rising because you run to celebrate life. You run because it is a form of prayer. You’re speaking to Mother Earth with your feet. You’re breathing in Father Sky. You’re telling them, you’re asking them for blessings. You’re showing them that you’re willing to work for that prayer, for those blessings.”
Words from Navajo trail runner and educator Shaun Martin, featured in the morning shakeout #180 and from Sanjay Rawal’s excellent 3100 Film (which you can learn more about on Episode 34 of the morning shakeout podcast).
