Running for ME

This morning I got up before 6am to head out the door to run with wonderful women.  Last year I could run right along side of them easily.  This year I was left behind within a few hundred feet of beginning.  What is great is that I am okay with that.  I am at a very different place this year.  My body is different!  I kept on running at my own pace and then decided at the end to even add a little distance onto my run.  I enjoyed being alone with my thoughts and simply pushing my body to keep going.  It sure felt good to feel the sweat dripping and my breath getting a little heavy.  I must do this more often.  I feel GREAT!!!

  1. I actually prefer to run alone. It is a great time for me to think a lot of things through. I have had people suggest we run together, but I always politely decline. I am grateful we live in such a safe neighborhood that I can run alone!
