I was feeling a little out of sorts this morning.
I’ve been itching to start my exercise routine up once again.
I want to be able to run 4-6 miles three times a week.
My plan was to get started this week, but I was frustrated with rain (I don’t run in the rain) and sick kids (which means no gym childcare).
Then the sun came out this morning.
I hit the pavement with Lorelai and the BOB.
I needed it.
I walked for over an hour.
I took occasional photos of the beautiful fall colors.
I let my mind go blank and just focused on what was in front of me.
It’s been months since I have exercised regularly.
Oh, who am I kidding?
It’s been months since I have exercised. Period.
I’m feeling it.
In my mood.
In my body.
I’m not going to go into why I stopped, but I know I want to get started again.
It felt good to put one foot in front of the other.
I am hoping we get another dry day tomorrow so I can do it again.
It felt fabulous.
So, I’m going to have to find a way to fit it all in.
All the things that make me feel good.
They make me a better person.
A better wife.
A better mom.
A better friend.
A better ME.
home is…hitting the pavement.
