Sometimes ... all you need is ...

Sometimes ... all you need is ...
to listen to your body
to listen to your aches
to listen to your pains
to allow yourself a break
to take a step back
to enjoy the little things
to appreciate your body
to embrace each step
to enjoy the journey
to miss the run
It will miss you back.
After a hobbling 5K run around my neighborhood on Sunday afternoon, I took a couple of days off.  Twelve minute miles while hobbling on a bum right ankle, forced me to listen to my body.  I rested.  I iced.  I relaxed.  And when I felt better.
I ran ...
and it felt friggin' FANTASTIC!
