didn't take any music with me for this one. it was an entertain myself with my own thoughts day. spent some time thinking about how running has changed things in my life on so many levels.
1.) i am healthier than i have ever been, and not just from the actual cardio activity. because i am working hard on being the best runner i can be, i think about everything i put into my body. (for the most part. ie. vodka)
2.) running has provided me great mental solace. there's been lots of shstuff on my plate recently, and i've survived it like a champ!
3.) running is so empowering! if you would have asked me 5 years ago if i could run a marathon, i would have laughed in your face. the thought of running 26.2 miles sounded absolutely absurd! now i am constantly trying to convince people of how easy it is if you just put a little work into it. anyone can do, and you will feel like a million bucks when you do! i can do anything i set my mind to!!
4.) i love runners! i have met the most amazing people through my running. such camaraderie and spirit!!
i am thankful every day that i am healthy and able to enjoy my sport. go run people!!!
