I knew I’d pay the price for running a 10k since the last time I ran a 10k I was wrecked, but I did it anyways.
Yep, I paid the price. My legs stiffened after the race. The next day, my tendons were sore. The day after that, my calves were sore. Three days in, I got a massage, so the day after that my butt hurt because my massage therapist pressed so hard on my butt to release the tension.
Yeah, fun stuff.
I’m unsure why I pay ($45 race fee and $100 massage) for torture, but I continue to do so.
It’s just something I do and something I will continue to do until I can’t anymore.

But here in Colorado, we’ve had such an unseasonably warm winter that when it hit 60 degrees out, I HAD to go for a run. Who could waste such beautiful days?
Now, it’s colder out. And I still find myself craving my afternoon runs. And frequently, I take them.
I’ve been pretty stressed lately with life decisions–ya know, the big one like what should I do with the half of my life left type thing.
Running clears my mind. I get TONS of writing ideas from running. I remember tasks I have to complete. I see hawks and birds and squirrels and smile. Even though my heart rate is technically up, it is really down.
And afterwards? Priceless the relief I feel from all of life’s stresses. I’m even considering a 5k if the weather is nice enough!
