I had to share the above comic strip with you! Special thanks to Distant Runners! I can only run in the morning, so saying “I love running in the morning” really just means “I detest running after work or after a day’s worth of activities”. As tired as I am at 4am, I’m even more tired after food hits my tummy and daily life sets in. Darn my introvert ways 🙂 I always joke that it’s because my body doesn’t realize what it’s doing that early.
Speaking of running…today is NATIONAL RUNNING DAY! I ran 4 miles this morning to celebrate 🙂 Did you get your National Running Day badge? Get one here! Here’s mine:
HA! How true is that?! I’ve had days when I think, “I just need to go for a run”, even if it’s in the middle or later part of the day (which you know, as I mention above, I DON’T like to do). But it’s the knowledge that running fixes things. At least it gives me the time to reflect and the endorphins I need to re-position myself on an issue or situation. It’s my therapy session. It’s my “church”.
Your turn: Why do YOU run? How did you celebrate National Running Day?
