Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Early Morning Runs

Today I was supposed to get up at 5:00am to get my run in. I turned my alarm off ... sigh. I did manage to get on the treadmill at 6:00am and run 4 miles while Lil Man and Hubby ate breakfast. I then put Lil Man in the jogger for a short run. I had hoped to run 2 miles, but I was tired and hungry. We stopped at 1 mile.

But today's plan was for an easy 4-6 miles. I got in 5 miles which I'm happy with.

I hope to go to yoga tomorrow, but I need to get in a 40 minute tempo run. Yoga is at 8:30 which means we must leave the house by 8:00am. I also have lunch plans at 11:30 which means if I want to get in a morning run, I need to get up at 4:30am... hmmm. I could always try to get in an evening run, but those usually don't work out for me. By the end of the day, my energy level is nil. Plus with pop up thunderstorms, even the treadmill might not be an option.

It looks like early morning is my best option for tomorrow... too bad I'm so tired just thinking about it.
