You’re going to get wet anyway!

I had planned on going to the pool all day today until the rain came. It rained pretty hard, but you know what? I thought I’m going to get wet anyway!

In recent times rain has been enough to stop me from going out for runs, but it really is to my detriment. Running in the rain builds character and resilience, and it’s also not that bad once you’re out there. I guess the hard part is convincing yourself that it won’t be so bad. Besides, I’m most cases you’ll have a shower afterwards, so you’re going to get wet anyway!

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.
