For the last few months, I’ve been writing a biweekly column on balance for Competitor Running. Sometimes this is literal balance; sometimes the topic is more figurative balance. (Competitor is also running my video series on recovery, my new hobby horse.)
My most recent piece is a play on Timothy Leary’s famous “turn on, tune in, drop out.” I contend that changing the prepositions yields a useful suggestion for running: turn off, tune up, drop in. (Please try it out and let me know how it goes.) The same strategy works for yoga, for meditation, for mindful living.
