A Quick Hello After My Long Run

Hello and happy weekend!

I am back from my long run and ready to relax before enjoying the rest of the weekend.

Running these days has been treating me rather well. I noticed my weekly mileage has stayed consistently above 30 miles for a while now and I have been enjoying the crisp morning air that greets me and of course, my new sneakers.


I love any opportunity to quote Oprah.

So yes, in case you were wondering, I am still out there running almost every day. As for my fall race calendar, it is still a large question mark without any real answer in sight.

In fact, I ran into a friend at the gym the other morning who wanted to know how the 10k I was supposed to run last weekend went for me.

I told him I didn’t run.

He stared at me with a blank look and then questioned if I was injured.

I told him I was just fine and simply didn’t feel like it.

The man he was training with then chimed in and asked me if I lost my desire to run.

Lose my desire? Anything but.

I wish I could have offered them both more of an explanation but I couldn’t because I do not have one.

I am not sure where the race itch went but I don’t even try to figure it out.

As long as I am still eager to get out there each morning, as long I am enjoying each and every run, isn’t that all that matters?

We tend to over-analyze and question every move we make or don’t make in fear of heading down the wrong path.

We need to learn to trust ourselves and our decisions.


Confession: I am really good at letting life happen without over-analyzing and I don’t struggle to make big decisions except when it comes to dessert.


Do you know how long I stare at these Cold Stone Creamery combinations before making up my mind?

I have been thinking about my favorite chocolate dipped waffle bowl so a trip to Cold Stone this weekend is on my to-do list.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and please, treat yourself to something chocolate. Or an onion ring. Or something yummy…

    Not sure why you got the blank look. Who cares how much you race? Whether you do a formal run with others, run a fave route around the neighborhood, at a park or beach, you are doing something you are passionate about. Keep it up 🙂
