Our core is our center; it is where our arms, legs and head meet to create the human body we inhabit and control. It is where, just a few inches or centimeters above, resides the all important heart, pumping oxygen rich blood to all of our extremities. In an anthropological sense, the heart is the focused center of our emotional and mental character….it is the mystical source of our kindness, charity, and love. In this same way, our core…the very central characteristic of who and what we are is sometimes associated with our human identity.
To excel physically you must have a strong and powerful core, to excel as a human being you have to have a resilient and resolute center. Work on that part of yourself, both physically and emotionally and there will be nothing you cannot accomplish. Focus on developing your core and you’ll discover the power within yourself to run long and far and then you’ll find the strength to go on.
