Jenny advised Forest Gump to run whenever he was troubled. If you remember, he ran to the coast three times. Although I hardly ever ran because I was troubled, running was calming. The picture on the left was probably taken after I had run about 16 miles in the Omaha Marathon. I admit that, by this time, peace had given way to pain but I'm still glad I did it. One of the ideas I took away from my running is that runners create their own environment. So it is with life in general if we so choose. We can't control a lot of our extenal circumstances. We can control our disposition toward them. Works for me.
