Lace up the shoes,
put on the headphones
and hit the pavement.
This morning I laced up with a very heavy sad heart (it's been a tough week). The first mile I thought this is not looking good. I am going to end up in tears. The second mile my mood started to change, I found myself singing along to my music (in my head of course) and by mile 3 I was ready to tackle the hill that stood in front of me. So after 5.57 miles I am actually feeling pretty good!
Gotta love endorphins!!It is amazing what happens once I lose myself in the fresh air and the heart gets pumping a bit. I don't always come up with all the answers or solutions, but do find peace and end up with a much clearer mind. I feel like I have the strength once again to conquer what lies ahead of me. My bucket has been refilled at least for the moment and I can go on!!
