2017-03-01 - Yesterday, I blew off the run

randy flowersI felt kind of off yesterday so I blew off the run. Today, I started my day with the same blah feeling but decided to get out there and see if the run might change things up. It was a tough run with low energy, shortness of breath and it never got better. Feeling bummed out, I cut it short and jumped back into my work day where I immediately got swallowed up with the regular growing to-do list. About an hour in I took a break to get out my lunch and it occurred to me that I felt great, no blah to be found! Dang, the run worked and just like with many drugs, it takes a while to get into the system to do its work!

Never doubt the run,

Randy Step, an admitted obsessed runner that finds more reasons to admit it with every run
