Thought was 10 action was 7.06
I planned on a 10 mile long Saturday a.m. run but that didn't happen. 7.06 miles workout out instead. My thought this morning was a good beach run would be good to clear my head. 12 degrees and a biter wind made that thought questionable but I was already at Revere Beach so there was no turning back.
As I was running on the hard, cold, packed sand I realized that I am an emotional runner. My emotions guide my running. Friday I had an 8 hour state wide union meeting meeting. Needless to see my emotions and mentality were burned. Luckily I called a couple of my friends so I could have dinner and drink responsibly with others and not have a one or two bottle night by myself.
After a couple of glasses, great conversation, and a cobb salad I went home to rest. Sometimes you feel burned and haggard. I was( am). This morning I mapped out 10 miles in my head. I would run in the light not the dark. 6:45am was my starting time.
Running on the beach I appreciated the beauty of the sun rising above the ocean and the silence of not having people around me.
There were many moments for Fuel For Thought:
I had a chance to cry and think about my worth and value. I was able to think how ways to support my colleagues and let them know their value. I was able to realize that if people are not going to make an effort in a relationship that its time to let them go. I had the opportunity to just breathe and be for several miles.
