I was talking to my mom yesterday and she mentioned my running blog (Mom, thanks for reading!!). I was surprised at some of what she said. Unfortunately I can’t remember the exact words she used, but what I took away is that I may only be writing about the challenges associated with my training. I think (and hope) ADP would give a different picture than I do.
While I write about getting up early and being tired a lot of the time, ADP and my kids could give you a better report about other hours of the day. When I run I work through my stress and any unanswered questions I have (basic ones like what to buy everyone for Christmas). Focusing my mind and body for the entirety of my run makes me a better and more relaxed mom and wife. ADP doesn’t need to know my running schedule; he can tell the days I run because I’m in a better mood.
I think ADP must secretly laugh at me when I get home from a long run. I’m hot and sweaty and absolutely giddy. I shiver all day because I’m cold and yet I’m still giddy. I am not a bubbly person by nature, but I have a hard time sitting still on Saturdays because I’m so unbelievably excited about my running.
I’m tired and proud and excited and ready to keep on running.
