She is the one that motivates me. She is the one that inspires me. She is the one that pushes me to succeed. She is always there and will never let me down. We have been flying in the sky since my feet began to run. She helps to keep me focused. She helps me reach that high.
Meet My Shadow…
Fearless, confident and strong she guides me in the darkness. Focused on the dance in the deep cavernous forest, partnered with the thrill that consumes us on this dark, brisk evening. Mind racing, heart pounding… but not from just the rush from the run but for the unknown that lies ahead. Because on this trail in the mysterious, moonlit sky, my shadow and I become one.
No matter how challenging the terrain may be, she is there pushing me further. No matter how cold the conditions feel, she is there to bring me warmth. She takes away the harshness of the frigid brisk air as it fills my lungs. With each step she will glide me safely over the ice and protect me if I fall. She will forever lead me once again as I allow her to guide the way.
The further I climb the harder she pushes… and when there seems to be no end the stronger she pulls… until the top of the mountain is conquered. My confidence is then replenished as I drink my fears away for not 1… 2… 3… but 4 more challenging hills to overcome.
The run will forever call me and I will always be ready, with My Shadow by my side.
