You'll Do Just Fine in 2009

Easy three mile run today and ran into Jen! She joined me on the rest of my run over to a friend's house...we departed then I went to yoga for an hour. Jen and I realized that this was the first time that we had run together...which is totally odd considering we live in the same city and do other stuff together and talk about running all the time.

Anywho - today I learned that in yoga, the new year's practice is one of the most important of the year. This the time you decide your intentions, not resolutions, for the new year. Resolutions imply that there is something wrong or negative that needs to be fixed. In yoga apparently they believe that all people are good and stuff, they just might not know it. Intentions only reveal an aspect of yourself that is already present and needs to be uncovered.

So there you go, you're all beautiful and holy and perfect and godly. (So don't worry about that 3rd bottle of champagne or 17th jalepeno popper or that random guy/girl that you're about to hook up with because you are perfect and going to heaven.)

Namaste and Happy Almost New Year fellas.

Oh man - I like you! I'm glad I don't need to worry about any of that stuff! Today I was running in the Pearl / waterfront and kept looking for either you or Jen. Funny you guys found each other. After six miles I found the bar :) Happy New Year!

I love yoga. I used to think it was a bit new agey and silly but really I love the practice of setting your intentions.

There will be many more opportunities for runner blogger meetups and runs!
