Awe, bad days….I think we all have them.
I think bad days are like training for a race or a running goal. If you never had a bad run you wouldn’t be able to appreciate the really awesome runs. Hmmm….I feel like I’m trying to sell snow to an eskimo.
Without indulging…today was tough. I find that when I do have those inevitable bad days…I ultimately end up gaining something from it in the end. Today, I have no idea what I will gain other then complete exhaustion.
these gremlins got to hang out together! I am beyond thrilled that my boys get to spend quality time with all of their cousins, (sorry Benny! I didn’t mean not to have a picture of you up too).
My sister and I swore up and down when we were younger that we would be living near each other raising our kids side-by-side. Here I am living a state away and no chance of moving closer; I am a family person so this concept is tough.
Aside from training for marathons without the support/help family living in close proximity or missing out on the every day things…I could find myself going crazy on a regular basis.
How do I keep it together?
- Chances are someone has it a lot tougher then I hopefully every have to imagine, (ends a pity party every time)
- I snuggle my boys and remind myself of everything great I do have
- GO FOR A RUN!
I’m telling you…running has probably saved me on thousands in therapy. Today was no exception to this rule.. I hit the trails here in Bozeman, (too in the zone to stop and take a picture, sorry!) and felt my tension melt away. I have a long way from feeling better…but the run helped a whole heck of a lot.
Here’s hoping to a better Monday!
Do you use running as your therapy?
How do you bounce back from a bad day?
