A few months ago, I would have missed these as I try to kill myself running Lake Nokomis at 7 min/mile… But life gave me a reason to slow down; to breathe in fresh air (even frigid); to weed out things that aren’t necessary anymore and to spend my time and energy on things that are more important instead of just on myself.
Does this mean that I will stop running? My reply to that is no. But gone are those days where I want to push myself to the point of discomfort and exhaustion.
I still plan to run my favorite lake and the River Parkway here and there, so if you see me on the trail, do not hesitate to say hi… I will do the same.
Hope you are having an amazing Thursday.
