The moment I changed my thinking from "I have to run today" to "I get to run today"...everything switched for me.
Running isn't a chore. It's a blessing. I live such an insanely fortunate life that I can actually decide to run purely for fun and health's sake.
Maybe this sounds a little cheesy, but it's true.
I'm healthy. I'm able. And I have freedom and the means to run for no particular reason. What an incredible thing.
I'm deciding to honor that gift by soaking up every chance I have to enjoy it.
