It's been a while since I've posted about running. That's because I was starting to hate it!
I finally made it back out on Monday after a 3 week hiatus. It felt surprisingly good. And it wasn't because I shed some weight over the holidays or became miraculously healthy on January 1st. It's because I took two weeks off from the daily grind and shed some stress and mental anguish. I was actually in a good frame of mind!
So, on Monday, as this new positive attitude and I ran through bustling noontime downtown, the Christmas decorations finally coming down, it occured to me that there really is a powerful mind-body connection to running.
Even though I failed miserably at my 10K goal last year, I think I'm ready to pick it back up again in 2013. At least until I become completely overwhelmed again. (Most likely sometime next week.)
