I have a love-hate relationship with running. When I am in shape, I love it. When I am out of shape, I hate it. When I'm still getting into shape, I love it. And sometimes, no matter what kind of shape I'm in, if the weather is gorgeous and it's not pollen season, I love it then, too.
Today, I had to stay after school for a parent conference, then I made a stop at a co-workers baby shower, and when I finally got home I was in no mood to run. I forced myself to put my workout clothes on and figured once that happened, I might make it out the door. I did.
I am not currently in great running shape, but today was one of those good days. The weather was pretty warm, but there was a nice enough breeze that it was just perfect. The pollen count was low and I had no trouble breathing. I just went. I had no idea how far I was going to go, and I ended up getting three miles in, just in time to arrive back home to get ready to coach.
Today is an I-love-running day. I love the way I feel after a run; no matter how long, or short it was. When I got home from school I was ready to fall asleep and now I feel great...I'm very glad I decided to head outside today :).
