One of THOSE Days

Today was one of those days.  One of those days when you wake and every soul in the house, probably in the neighborhood still sleeps.  One of those days that you treat your children to movies and then a day at the park.  One of those days when two of your children fight like cats and dogs in said park.  One of those days when one kid throws a fit and tries to knock you off your scooter (yup, I was riding a scooter) in said park.  One of those days when one child interrupts your conversation with a friend and argues with you about what you just said.  But none of these things are what I’m writing about.  I’m writing about one of THOSE days when I wake to run and every cell in my body says NO, NO, NO.

Dressed and ready to go, pack in hand, running bag in other, I ALMOST, almost set down my gear, took off my shoes and crawled in bed.  But I knew.  I knew that I would regret that.  And most of all, I knew that I would change my mind about running, pretty much as soon as I started running.

And so I ran.  Not far.  But I ran trails, and I enjoyed every single minute on them.  If I didn’t have to get back in time for a morning movie show time, I’d probably still be running.

  1. Nothing lets you say "SO WHAT!" to all the crap that the day will bring like knowing that you've already done your run for the day and the rest just doesn't matter. That's how I survive every time my company sends me to hell (er, I mean Vegas). Getting to do it up on those trails is just a mega-bonus. Sweet.

  2. At least you survived to tell us about the day:) The runs when I'm thinking maybe not today always turn out good runs.

  4. Knowing that those days end up giving me some of the best runs Johann, help to get me out there.
