When I run….
When I run, I feel so strong. Seriously, I absolutely adore the feeling that I get after a nice run.
Yesterday was one of those days that I just didn’t really feel like running. I completed 30 miles this week, had a long week at work, and was just tired. I contemplated just doing one mile and doing my 6 miles today. I knew that I would be kicking myself today if I did that because I want to do 6 miles tomorrow on my day off.
I am so happy that I got out there and did my run, even though I didn’t feel like it.
I ran at a nice easy pace- around my neighborhood and up the the hill that Bri and I refer to as “the widow maker”. It was glorious. Sometimes the best runs happen on the days that I do not *think* that I feel like running. Turns out, once I get out there, I soar. I did an easy 6.2 miles in 54 minutes. The weather was cold but comfortable. My music was good. My mind felt clear. I felt strong.
When I run, I feel in control- I feel happy, confident, capable. So happy to be running.
Last night I drove out to Harrisburg with my mom to pick up my niece from her acting class. I bet you could travel the world all over and never meet someone like our Juliet.
She is into acting and is taking an acting/modeling course with an agency. So cool.
After my mom and I picked her up, we went to dinner at a little restaurant in Fleetwood. It was good- I got a chicken caesar salad (boring).
I didn’t get home until 9 and was shocked that I was able to stay up late to watch SNL. It always makes me feel cool if I can stay up late enough to watch SNL…..
This morning I slept in until 9 (who am I?), woke up and made this:
I had to hustle to eat, run my one mile, and get ready for church. I loved the service this morning, especially because we sang my favorite song, Cornerstone.
This song gets me every.single.time.
For lunch I made vegetable soup, a turkey and cheese wrap, and plain greek yogurt.
Bri and I are having a lazy Sunday and planning a taco fiesta tonight. So happy I hustled and did my one mile before church today- it is freezing and so so so windy outside! Words cannot even begin to express that joy that I have knowing I have off tomorrow. Hallelujah.
