Running helps train me to live life loving God and those around me, by attending to kardias and psyche and ischui and dianoia (Luke 10:25-37).
kardias: running is an act of will, before it is an act of the body; a choice, for coming alive.
psyche: running is concerned with attending, closely, to our breathing.
ischui: running is embodied force, the body at times overcoming the resistance of the mind.
dianoia: running engages the imagination, of what is possible, especially done together.
