My heart gets carried away every time I take a break from running.
6 days full recovery. No running, no cross training. NOTHING.
It felt good up until a point.
I needed to run today. My mind needed it, my body needed it, my heart needed it.
Living so close to my favorite place to run makes me happy. Often times I find myself staring out my front window, lost in thought, watching runners and cyclists go by.
This is my dream house.
One day I want my ashes to be scattered on that trail. Is it strange to think of your own mortality at age 30?
I want to live in the present. Be happy in the moment. Stop worrying about the future and go with the flow.
I want to seize opportunities.
10 miles in exactly 1:20:00
Thankful for the trail today and for my legs that continue to amaze me on runs. One day I promise to stop thinking about all the things I don’t like about my body and focus on the things I do like. Why should I waste my life thinking negative thoughts or wanting to change what is a part of me. I am who I am.
