A Runner: A beautiful blur

All those miles you ran…they’re all just a blur. Or rather, you were just a blur.

Blur of motion, speed, power, strength. Endurance.
A streak filled of exertion, perseverance, dedication.

Make your lines swift, movements efficient, cut through the air.
A beautiful blur. A runner.

  1. I read all of your posts and this one is honestly my favorite.

    simple and beautiful.

  2. We run a bridge here because there really aren’t hills and I love it, it always makes me feel super strong and I love the fast feeling coming down too! I definitely feel like a blur running it!

  3. I love these pictures Cait – really gorgeous :)

  4. Great pictures!

    I feel fast when the weather is cool and there are lots of people around. You can tell I’m an extrovert right? I perform when anyone can see me :-P

    I feel powerful when I push through the pain – when I want to give up but refuse to give in.

    My reminders are to land more softly! I do a sound and pressure check on myself every km or so.

  5. Love this! I am not all that experienced, but I feel powerful when my legs feel amazing and I just keep going. This is going to sound horrible, but I also feel pretty good when I tell people that I like to run. ;)
    Negative splits also do the job….:)
    Great pictures Cait!

  6. Beautiful blur. Simple and sweet. Great drawings!

  7. these are quite possibly some of my most favorite artwork by you! wowwww! love them so much friend! i think running in general makes me feel powerful because i feel such a balance of spirit, mind and body. i feel confident, alive and rejuvenated/refreshed for the day!!
