now, am i saying good morning to greet you or am i implying that i'm having a good morning? honestly, i don't know. of course i want to greet you in a friendly fashion but am i really having a good morning? yes and no. yes, i crawled out of bed at 4:43 to go run 5 miles before work. now, i've never planned on running that far before my family wakes up and my day really starts but i feel nice. i'm glad it's behind me. i did it. there is such pride and satisfaction in doing something you never really thought you would do. i'm not a natural runner. i'm not tall with legs for miles. i'm actually quite short and have short
tree trunk legs. i run bc i enjoy it. i'm not fast. i'm not in it for competition. i'm in it for me. i've set goals recently where even i amaze myself. it takes a lot of work, time, and dedication to run long mileage. it's hard on your muscles and joints - and toes! i can't forget the toes. i've even lost a toenail! most important - it takes time away from my sweet boy and family. sometimes i feel selfish but most of the time i feel so good when i'm done that i'm just proud i set a high goal and i get up, hit the pavement and be proactive in reaching it. so, it' almost 9 and i'm ready for a nap. instead i have a mandatory meeting. good thing i'm armed with starbucks. good morning everyone.
