Don’t worry-I’m not actually going to go stabbing people with forks. But I know that I’m not the only one out there that feels like this some days.
There are just some days that it seems no matter what, everything goes wrong.
Last Saturday morning, I was not in a good mood. I was crabby for many reasons and really just wanted to lay in my bed all day and sulk like a 5 year old. Lucky for me, I have friends that tell me to get off my big butt and do something about it. One of my friends sent me a message and said “Go run it off girl! You will feel better!” Thanks Lindsey :)
And imagine that-I did. I threw on one of my cute new running skirts, turned up my music, and hit the pavement. It was humid, but a beautiful day.
I ran…and ran…and ran. Around mile 4 I was in the zone and on a total runners high. Things were looking up. I love you, endorphins.
By the end of my run, I knocked out 7 miles! I felt amazing. And accomplished. And like I could take on the world! The things that were bothering me weren’t so important anymore, I left those feelings out on the trail.
A year ago, I never would have viewed running as a form of “therapy”. Honestly, I would have told you it was actually just pure torture. How have I let myself miss out on this for so long? How did I survive those days, or weeks, where I just wanted to stab people with forks? Lets be honest-it was with ice cream and blueberry beer. I still like those too.
If you’re having a tough day, get out there. Run it off. I promise you will feel better when you’re done. :)
