Been watching, reading, as well as running with a few more trail and ultra runners as of late..kind of putting my toe in the water of that community and one of the things that strikes me is how gear/gizmo dependent and attached they are. Heart monitors, crazy watches, apps, pacing metronomes, ipods, gps, a rather extensive list.. when they ask about mine and I share I don’t use anything but the awareness of my breath, body, earth and sky, usually not even a watch, they just look at me with the same look as a cow staring at a new gate. They might as well be hooked up to a simulator because they really are not out there on a trail running thru desert or alpine landscapes..they have no idea how to move across or be in the landscape.. they will never know Hozho
