2017-03-08 - I hate running!

randy flowersRecently, I've come across two tongue-in-cheek articles by passionate runners, explaining how they hate running. Cute lines like, "I even have 3 pairs of my favorite running shoes that I hate to run in" and, "I usually hate running 5 days a week but shoot for 6". Both articles ended the same, explaining that the worst thing about running is the fear that one day, running might not be an option and how would they go on. The love/hate relationship is hard to explain, but love song lines like," I love you so much that it hurts", resonate with us all. The most difficult things in life give us so much in return, we learn who we are and who we might be. Nothing good comes easy is a reality, we only truly appreciate the things we work for.

Let's get out and get in some hard earned miles, miles that will take us above the astral plane,

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,
