Every step counts in running a race or even running a business.
Marathon running has always created a space for me to let my mind and body run free. But free to the extent that the race course has specific turns to take and that the race has certain rules to follow. Similar to when I compare my running to that of helping run a business, that space to "run" free must be created. That even though it feels like many rules are needed to be followed, I still try to find that "zone" to work in.
