You know how somedays you can't think of a single word to write and then other days it just naturally flows? Well, occasionally, the writing bug strikes just AFTER I've logged out of my email and the blog.
That, I tell you, is the time to log right back in and WRITE! Even if it's just a few run on sentences or some bulleted thoughts, I find that writing down a few ideas now is better than saving it in your head and forgetting all those genius thoughts you once had. Okay, they don't even have to be genius, but possibly interesting to readers or just for your own good.
How I Feel When I Run:
Running makes me feel strong and confident.
It makes me feel like I have power over my own mind, my decisions and my pace (most of the time).
It gives me assurance that all this hard work and the hours of training I put into this thing I love are worth it.
Running makes me want to smile from the inside out.
And sometimes, it makes me want to cry.
Sometimes my hip or my hamstring or my knee hurts like hell and I think "Why am I putting myself through all this pain?"
Running makes me aware of my surroundings.
It opens my eyes to new opportunities, people and neighborhoods.
It brings me sanity and peace of mind.
Running makes me proud of my body.
Running makes me proud to be a woman.
Running makes me feel grateful that I have a body that can do all this crazy stuff.
Running makes me feel like I have a purpose, even if for just 45 minutes.
Tell me, how do you feel when you run or ride or do whatever it is you LOVE to do?
