It is Thanksgiving week. Last week got away from me and I found myself taking a seven day break. I didn’t plan to take the time off, it just kind of happened. As with anything that takes effort, beginning again can be challenging. It was only seven days, but I had to do a bit of self-talk before I headed out the door. I decided to take a new approach. I have mentioned how I enjoy my new iPhone and the use of the MapMyRun app that gives me pace and distance updates. It is a very good tool, especially when training for a race, but this week I turned on some tunes and turned off the app. I didn’t pay attention to my speed or distance. I just ran. I had a really great time! I think it was a good week to run for fun. After all, it’s Thanksgiving! I am thankful that running can be fun, because just like life, sometimes it can be really hard. Just like life, it’s worth it. Have a happy Turkey Day and remember why we celebrate – because we can!
