Races that have never been run before

Following the footsteps of those in front of you is a great way to do things safely and all but guarantee a safe finish, but it’s no way to win a race that’s never been run before. The only way to win a race that’s never been run before is to forge your own path.

When times are uncertain, when we’re running races that have never been run before, following in the footsteps might seem like a safe path, until you realise that’s no way to win.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hi, I’m Tim Bunting AKA the Kiwi Yamabushi, a New Zealander who became a Yamabushi Ascetic in the Dewa Sanzan mountains of north Japan. I’m part of the Yamabushido team, and we host life-altering Yamabushi training on the Dewa Sanzan (website link). People come to us for the ultimate mindfulness experience, to reach the next level, or simply connect with nature and themselves.


I’m on a mission to summit all 100 Famous Mountains of Yamagata Prefecture to spread the splendour of this fabulous location, and in dedication to all those who lost their lives out in nature, including my father.


On my daily blog I post thoughts of a practicing Yamabushi that I hope people can use to better themselves and live as fulfilling a life as possible.

Tim.
