Running Is My Therapy Session

This is my therapy session everyday. I’ve found it is the best way to clear my jumbled mind. But it is also a great way to just THINK. Sometimes I get way too caught up in things that need to be done, errands that need to be run, deadlines that need to be met or bills that need to be paid. When I run, I let the surroundings pull me in…which in all honesty, creates some pretty cool thoughts and emotions when it comes to writing.

Despite the great ideas and mind clarity, I am currently dealing with this.

Sore knees and shin splints are for the birds…or the out of shape peeps like myself.

Couldn’t have said it better myself. I find myself repeating this throughout my run everyday, although by the end of the first mile…thoughts of hate tend to override the “loving” feelings for such agony.

Yet when I arrive back home, red faced, sweaty, stinkin’ like a garbage can, I feel refreshed and totally renewed.

The bunny has nothing to do with this post. My random thoughts have flowed over this afternoon…I just thought he was too cute! He reminds me that LOVE is such a beautiful thing and HATE is not. Wonder if he’d fit in the pocket of my running shirt? Perhaps I’d love running a little more if he came with me. πŸ™‚

Happy Friday everyone!

  1. You should try running on grass or softer surfaces, that should help with your sore knees!

  2. Oh, how I relate! I love running (after I’m done, at any rate!), but I’ve had plantar fasciitis for a while. I’d only just gotten back into running when I got this one-month infection. Now that I’m nearing the end of my course of medicine, I’m thinking of running again. I’d bet I could get one run in before I set out next weekend. It’d do me a world of good, that!

    • Deb,
      I had plantar fascitiis last spring and it was TERRIBLE. I had to quit running for a few months. Thankfully it went away, but it was really painful.
      If only you lived closer….we could be running buddies! πŸ™‚
