Jason Mraz updated fans on his blog at MySpace (@jasonmraz) on Tuesday (April 28), talking about his participation in the Country Music 1/2 Marathon last weekend in Nashville, Tennessee. The San Diego singer songwriter tells readers:
I’m not a religious man. Nor am I one to change my behavior on account of superstitions. (Even when I’m feeling watched thru two-way mirrors in just about every hotel I stay in.) But I do converse with the supernatural, meaning I choose to pray and meditate in communion with the Self and THAT which is deeper than myself, powering me forward thru life. I go back and forth on what I believe about the afterlife and find it’s best to put my faith in THIS life instead. Still, I can’t help but think I’m sometimes guided and guarded by angels, those who have a keen intuition of a grander outcome for me.
For instance, I ran the Country Music 1/2 Marathon last weekend in Nashville, Tennessee. I’d never run more than 9 miles in my life, but here I was signed up to complete 13. Around mile 11 I heard a voice inside begging me to walk. This wasn’t me. This had to have been an angel, most likely my one of my departed grandmothers. Take it easy she was saying. “You don’t want a hernia. Slow down before you pop another blood vessel in your eye.” But then came another voice. “You get your ass in gear boy. You only got 20 some more minutes. Lets do this.”
