Running Fortress

If and when we build that fortress around our run(s)…it’s not exactly how that song by Sting goes, is it? I know, fortress around your heart, fortress around your run. Very similar because we do run with and for our hearts, souls, bodies. But we could sing that song that way while we run. Hint […]
