The Dickens classic “A Christmas Carol” is timeless, with a valuable lesson on the power of kindness, generosity and connecting to other people. It also transcends specific circumstances, and it can be applied just as well to running.

In Dickens’ telling, the self-centered Scrooge is visited by three spirits on Christmas Eve: first, the Ghost of Christmas Past, then the Ghost of Christmas Present and, finally, the Ghost of Christmas Future. What would it look like if the spirits of running paid you a visit?
