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

Frustrating

So, when did that happen that overnight Lil Man went from jumping and dancing in his jumper while I ran on the treadmill to screaming non stop, as if his very life depended on getting him out RIGHT NOW! I thought this morning that surely he would settle down. After 10 minutes, I decided it wasn't doing either one of us any good and gave up.

Then I thought, why I don't I try the pack n play. I set it all up, gave him some toys that I KNEW he enjoys playing with and the screaming began again. Defeated, I gave up.

What changed? It was just a couple of weeks ago he was jumping and playing and at least tolerated with a smile 20 minutes or so while I ran. Now, he refuses totally.

It's really not that big of a deal (however frustrating) at the moment because I am running most runs outside. But once the weather changes, I will be using the treadmill more and more.  I don't have a solution for this problem yet.
