So I think we all fight a little bit of boredom during our workouts. Am I right?
It’s nice to have something to keep your mind focused on while you do your thing.
Music only keeps my mind occupied for fifteen minutes or so before I start getting bored.
And then I found the TED app on my phone. If you don’t know what TED is, check it out!
It’s an online collection of some of the most interesting seminars you’ve ever heard.
Now when I rollerblade I get to learn! (I don’t think I’ve ever sounded like a bigger nerd before in my life.)
That’s right. I rollerblade and I love adding new wrinkles to my brain.
Feel free to laugh at me because I would probably laugh at me if I weren’t me. (That was sorta confusing / dumb to say.)
Anyways. I love to keep warm with my Nike and Carhartt gear.
Like your mom told you: layer, layer, layer! and add argyle socks when you can.
So I was crazy and I didn’t bring workout clothes on my trip to Texas.
But I guess that’s good news because I got to get some new stuff.
I love the pattern on these Nike shorts!
Do you ever get tired of hearing- “When life gives you lemons, make lemonade?”
I know I sure do. And I feel as though I’ve heard that way too much lately.
This has been a really tough week- I’ll spare you the details.
Today I knew I just needed to run and get everything off my brain-frame.
Usually I run on a treadmill…lame…I know all you avid runners are rolling your eyes at me right now.
I’ve just always felt weird running in front of people.
Well- I’m proud to say that I got over that today.
I wanted to be outside where it was beautiful, and not in some stuffy gym.
I ran in downtown Chicago, and it was fantastic!
At the risk of sounding trite, it was really invigorating and even empowering.
It reminded me of this quote by one of my favorite authors:
Life is full of marble and mud.
Parts of life are going to be beautiful and parts will be a little more messy.
At least we can run them off…and make something really beautiful in the mud.
