2015 was the year of defeating major obstacles....especially for Mo Farah
That year he opened with a world record (his first) in the 2 mile indoors with 8:03.40, lowering Kenenisa Bekele's 2008 mark. He defeated the world cross country champion Geoffrey Kamworror at the Prefontaine Classic 10,000m, and did it again in the IAAF Beijing World Championships. Of course, there were the lows of losing in the outdoor season opener in Doha, where Hagos Gebrewhit out kicked him over 3,000m...and there also were the doping allegations made against him and the Oregon Project group...but the Brit blocked all that out and focused on the goals at hand.
Mo Farah capped off his fantastic 2015 season when he retained his title in the Great North Run half marathon, only 1 second ahead of Kenya's Stanley Biwott. The two covered their last 800m in a blistering 2:00 (63/57!)—that means 4:00 minute mile speed! Farah kicked past the Kenyan, who had led for most of the race, at 400m to go and sprinted into the finish in a 59:23 personal best.

This is a photo from my two month long, cross (around) country trip that I started in October of last year.
I am sharing this with all of you because I've been pretty inactive with my posts on here. I've been pretty inactive with my yoga practice in general, and I've veered a bit off the beautiful path I was so centered on just a couple months ago.
I've been thinking of this trip, and how beautiful it turned out to be. I've thought of the days where I just sat and cried because things got bad and then they got worse, and I didn't know how to cope. I was so far out of my comfort zone, and so utterly winging life that I felt lost, yet somehow so incredibly found, at the exact same time. I took that trip because I wasn't ok with simply existing. I wanted more out of life. And now I have found myself stuck again, feeling depression slowly take over because once again things got hard. While I sit here and reflect on all of this I realize... this is life. Things get hard, we get stuck, we break down, but if we keep moving we find the beauty again.
This photo was taken after a long couple of weeks, where I constantly thought about turning around. I got to this forest and I was in tears. Not because I was sad, but because I was doing something I always wanted to do. I was amongst the redwoods and that was one of the most amazing moments of my life.
Things may be hard right now, for me and for others, but this is just a reminder to us all, that if we can push through, we will find the beauty again.
Those are all the deep thoughts I have for tonight. Tomorrow is a new day, and I am going to work so hard tomorrow to get back on my path. (And now I have all of you to hold me to it!)
