Now matter how bad it is...its about to get better

I suffer from crappy days just like everyone else. I would argue that sometimes, more than most...but no matter how bad the day is I know that when I look down and see this day is about to get better.

I don't know what it is about running, but all the trials and tribulations of the day seem to melt away with every foot fall. Granted, I am a cyclist by trade and grew up letting the world melt under my wheels but I have found running to be so much more cathartic now that I've gotten older. Running, is like life: You have to constantly put one foot in front of the other, slowing but never stopping, always running towards your final goal. Notice I didn't say destination. Those goals, no matter the size; making it to the end of your street, running your fastest mile, conquering that familiar route, setting a PR or just building base mileage or whatever are the things that pile up and make you a "runner".


  1. That's so true! Running really helps my mental health more than anything!

  2. Ditto the above comment... keep on running!
