On the run

This is how I feel on an average morning:

This is how I feel today, after my morning run:

Seriously, I know I'm going to sound like one of those annoying people who actually likes working out. But I actually like working out. It makes me feel so... well - like that picture above.

I've been in a good mood all day today and it's Tuesday (my most despised day of the week. Here's why: on Mondays I've made peace with the fact that it's the beginning of the week and the weekend is over and the next weekend is far, far away. On Wednesdays, it's "hump day". So I know I'm getting closer to the weekend. But Tuesdays? They're just a non-descript, not-quite-middle-of-the-week day that offers nothing to look forward to).

Anyway - so I've been in a great mood and I can only attribute that to the fact that I got my endorphins going big time this morning as I jogged down quiet streets without cars or masses of people around. Just me and Ma and some good conversation. Really, it's a great feeling to start your day in a fantastic mood.

Alright, now before I lose readership due to the "holier-than-thou I-love-being-healthy-and-fit-and-I'm-so-fan-frickin'-tastic" attitude, I will leave you. BUT - I will leave you with this thought:

  1. Did you go running in that dress? Wow, you really are glamourous!

  2. Haha - I was going to have a little asterisk with legal note saying that I'm not actually wearing that dress today. But I thought the line "this is what I FEEL like" would cover it off. :)

  3. We did have a good time this morning didn't we? I wasn't so sure when 5:25 a.m. rolled around and I had to fall out of bed and drive to your house! There is an awful lot of traffic at 6:00 in the morning, who are these people going to work in the dark??

  4. Sometimes I imagine myself running...but usually it's because I'm imagining someone chasing me. Kidding--sort of. I do know what you mean though. Whenever I work out, I feel great after.

  5. 6 am!?!?! that's dedication.. i don't know how you two do it :)
