Faith and Afirmations

Ok, so not to get all religious here, but our family is Unitarian Universalist which means we believe in love and accept all forms of faith. It leads us to some pretty cool things and when I ran the first Mother Road 100 in 2006, I took the following benediction with me as a calming influence...

Deep peace of the running wave to you.
Deep peace of the flowing air to you.
Deep peace of the quiet earth to you.
Deep peace of the shining stars to you.
Deep peace of the infinite peace to you.

Sometimes that 100 miles really does feel infinite... ;-)

Here, by the way, is the full version of this.
