Dancing Machismo or Simply the Flow

The essence of running and living at our best involves simple things. Moving forward, always toward the next goal, the next step... doing so in a relaxed manner and within the natural order of things... this can be called a dance; though some of the more machismo oriented of us may call it simply flow.

Click here for a more in depth look at this concept as experienced by me this past spring, when the colors were just arriving and the air was a pleasing, fresh hug of an old friend.


  1. The feeling I get while on a good run or bike is almost a unity with everything around me. I can imagine the road, the air, everything pushing me on. I guess you would call that flow.

  2. Dancing machismo, flow, the Zone...all different names for what each runner strives for- to be in that magical place where it all comes together and feels easy and joyful. Great post- nice reminder. Happy New Year!

  3. I'm still trying to find my flow. Right now it has consisted of lots of grunting and a few curse words.

    That said, I DO think of this during every tempo or faster effort..... relaxed, fluid....flow.
