Reasons To Be Fit #20

You aren't afraid to stop mid-run, lie in the grass, smell the sweet decay of fall, savor the cool air. You know that fitness ~ the kind that sustains a lifetime ~ is about much more than numbers on a scale or a barbell or a distance-tracking app. Fitness is not only about measuring physical accomplishments, but about finding the right mindset and heartspace.

When you are fit you know that your body is not a machine to be programmed, not a work in progress to be perfected, not a sin to be punished, not a vessel to be purified. You know that your body is the flesh and manifestation of your soul. It is your home and is ~ without a doubt ~ a special thing to be enjoyed.
