What a good run can do

My oh my what a week. I should’ve known the week was going to be rough when I couldn’t get in my long run on Sunday due to God awful weather. 

Somehow I managed to get through the week with minimal running. I most likely will not be meeting my planned 120 miles for the month. I’m ok it’s that though there are plenty of days left in the year. 

Today I got to run though. I decided to run this morning since it was snowing and I really wanted to start my day right. 

Best decision ever!!!

It was not only a good run but a great run! My week was long and stressful and today I ran it all out. 

Here are just a few things off the top of my head that a good run can do….for me at least. 

  • A good run can make me forget a bad day. 
  • A good run can help me sort through my problems….way cheaper than a therapist 
  • A good run is the best way to start my day or end my day for that matter. 
  • A good run can remind me of why I began running. 
  • A good run can and will cancel out that cheeseburger or donut or whatever my weakness is that day.  At least I that’s what I tell myself. 
  • A good run when I’m mad will make me run faster and maybe, just maybe help me forget I were mad to begin with. 

Today made up for all the miles I missed this week. I ran through Chinatown, LOVE Park and the Italian Market. I loved it! The sun was shining, snow was falling and I was running. It was all I could ask for at that moment in time. I wasn’t even upset the couple times I slipped because miraculously I stayed upright.  I was a little shocked by the large amount of people on the street, but I didn’t even let that bother me. My feet felt great, no lead legs or side stitches to slow me down. 

Today’s run made me forgot about how stressed I was and how long the days were. I am blessed to have the ability to continue putting one foot in front of the other in this great race we call life!

Until next time!!

  1. You are so right about all those things that a good run can do. I haven’t had a good outside run in a while. I should have today. The snow was falling beautiful and I should have been out in it running. You did it and I am envious! Are you in Philly? Good for you! The good run shows on your face.
