National Running Day. Today, is it? I know you’re excited.
It was also Personal Wake-up-at-5:30-for-my-5:30-Run Day.
Damn. Now I kind of have to squeeze it in my day at some point later. In between strength training and evening plans, my day is going to be a fun juggling act. Getting the run out of the way in the morning would probably have been my best option. Well, schuckle me timbers.
So if I procrastinate this much, why do I even do it? Why do I run? It seems the first 10 minutes is always a mental battle to convince myself that not turning around is my best option.
I run for my heart. I run to feel the wind and the sun on my skin. I run to be strong. I run because I love myself. I want to do good for my health, and treat my body well.
