The feeling I get when in motion is unmistakable. The thrill of the ride, the freedom of the drive, even waking up in a moving bus. As long as I'm in motion, it's all good. I've packed a mess of motion into these last two weeks. 65 mile 'cross ride/race, Appalachain Trail hike/run, mountain bike rides, beach run, paddle boarding, road rides, dirt biking and other things I can't remember. Motion, for me, is my neutral state. That's probably why meditation and yoga are so profound for me (and so difficult to do) and why I can't seem to bring myself to pick up fishing. Slowing it all down, lying on the beach reading with my wife or sitting through a movie, takes incredible discipline. Travel and touring, riding and running energize me, it's gas in the tank.
