Fighting Boredom

Like a bee, it stings.

Like the sea, it drowns you.

Like a snake, it can swallow you alive.

Boredom that is.

Not many can withstand it.

Only a few gifted people can laugh at it.

How do you fight it? You don’t.

You just don’t give it any thought.

You focus your mind on the run.

Regardless of the distance that can bore you.

Break it into minute pieces.

One piece at a time.

You start and end. In the mind.

Running long is a mind game.

And running tough requires a tough mind.

You know the drill…

…when the going gets tough?

The tough gets nothing.
