A quotation you like…

Don’t speak negatively about yourself, even as a joke. Your body doesn’t know the difference. Words are energy & cast spells-that’s why it’s called spelling. Change the way you speak about yourself & you can change your life. What you’re not changing, you’re also choosing – Bruce Lee

Why do you run?

It is the ultimate connection to Freedom
