Hello world! I’ve returned from the dreary world of Not Being Able To Run!
I’m finally getting over my cold enough that I can run a couple miles at a decently fast clip (for me, slightly under 8s) without my chest totally hating me. My heels both still hurt a little, annoyingly, but I think that’ll go away once I get my flexibility back up from running (yay running!).
So yeah. Hopefully things in my life will go back to normal once I start running again… it was until I really couldn’t (about two weeks) that I realized just how much running keeps me sane and balanced and happy. Without it, I started to get a bit depressed and just generally more stressed and unsatisfied with myself and my life. But now…! Things are looking bright and happy once more!
Oh, and one of the local papers is doing an article on my running, I guess… which is cool. Hopefully the *photoshoot* (cringe?) on the trails (very not cringe) won’t be too awkward. I mean, I never think about what I look like when I run, but there also aren’t usually photogs on my runs. Except races, but no one looks good in race pictures. Or any running pictures, really – unless you’re one of Those People. (Tony, Jenn, etc.)
Plus my cat is adorable.
So yeah. I’m back!
peace love and FINALLY running!
