I have to sheepishly admit that I have not been very consistent with my new running plan. Two weeks ago I headed out the door when I really should have just gone to bed and I paid for it. I woke up the next day with a fever and have been fighting the cold that just won't die for two weeks now.
I felt better yesterday and the sun was out so out I went. It was a fabulous run, reminding me that I am alive. I continue to be amazed at what running does to me. I always feel refreshed and new. I think because running is about me and ONLY me. It is me and the pavement and the sound of my breath.
I am only able to go for 20 minutes or so at this point, but it is worth it...sooooooo worth it.
