So I didn't end up running on Monday. Skipping a run on vacation? No surprise there! :)
But moving on, let's take a little peek at my to-do list for this week...
And no where on there does it list running. This is everything I must do prior to training myself to run 26.2 miles! Sometimes it's so easy to overlook running. No professor is going to give me a grade for it. No one's going to ask if I got my running done for the day. My running doesn't really impact anyone else. But the impact it has on myself is HUGE.
I recently read this great post on running, and it mentions how running is good for the mind, body and soul. This is exactly why I run. And why I'll continue to run even when it feels like everything else in life is pulling me in a million directions.
I love running. It IS hard, like the post I mentioned says, but it is sooooooooooo good for my mind, body and soul. After I get back from a good run, I feel like I can tackle this to-do list and anything else that's thrown my way!
