I don’t get a chance to read many books but this one–Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving–and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity— I could not resist. I’ve only just started reading it, but I wanted to share a few lines that made me say “YES!” out loud.
“For an overstressed, overtired, overextended mother there are few other sensations that rival a delicious run. Once the sweat starts running down my temples, I daydream, analyze, smile, wonder, channeling something cosmic. I feel alive, and most importantly, like myself again.”
This is precisely why I love running. No matter how uncomfortable running might be these days, it is the only time of my day where I get to feel like ME again. (not a mom, wife, servant, etc.) but just ME and MY thoughts. It’s pure heaven. 🙂
Now I’m off to continue reading and to hopefully get out there and run today. How about you?
