God is a runner…

Tonight on my 10 miler after work, I listened to Faithless mostly… 7 miles in, endorphins pumping… This song struck a chord with me:

Faithless: God is a DJ

This is my Church
This is where I heal my hurts

It’s in natural grace
Or watching young lives shape
It’s in minor keys
Solutions and remedies
Enemies becoming friends
When bitterness ends

This is my Church
This is my Church

This is my Church
This is where I heal my hurts

It’s in the world I’ve become
Containded in the hum between voice and drum
It’s in change
The poetic justice of cause and effect
Respect, Love, Compassion
This is my Church
This is where I heal my hurts
For tonight God Is A DJ
For tonight God Is A DJ

This is my Church

Running up Great Western Road tonight, heart pumping, legs moving, feet taking step after step, even with the fumes from the cars, I felt like this was my church. Running is my church. 🙂 It makes me feel so good. So strong and like I can do anything.

You might know that I’m not religious in any way, but running has the ability to give me the strength, therapy and good feelings I need to be me, and be settled. Cape on, Super Lorn. 😉

On Sunday we got up early for a run, and were lucky enough to spend 40 minutes running as the sun came up.

Then tonight, after work, as I ran west towards the squinty bridge, with Sunshine by Gabrielle on my iPod, I watched as the sun set over my work (BBC), and the sky turned pink. It was very pretty.

My god is a runner, endorphins, smiles, nods and waves from other runners, and my music and chats with friends as I run, all help too. :-

Ps: BBC Scotland is looking pretty cool (if a little gay) this week. Again, I feel fortunate to be working there. 🙂
