What I'll Do On Thursday Morning

This happened the other day. Most of us have heard about it, and most of us have had a few things to say about it... and most of us don't know what to do about it. I still don't know.

What I do know is that I was talking to a friend the other day about getting back onto the pavement and running again. I was bemoaning the cold springtime mornings, and the muddy paths. She told me how she was running 5 and 7k over the past few weeks. And I said, "Ok, I'll aim for Thursday."

Life has been busy lately... stressful, hectic, restless. And now, I have stopped a moment to reflect.

And as I reflected on what happened in Boston, I knew that I would get up on Thursday morning, pull on all my layers, put on my hat, and go for a run. It won't change anything, it won't improve anything, but I know I will... because I can.

That is more than what a lot of people will be able to do this week. I'll do this for now until I know more...

So very true. Because we can. I also got out for a run this week and hope to again.

I'm tired now, but it was worth it. I'll be at it again very soon.

I disagree. It changes you, we've all seen the change in you since you started running.
Good job!
