Sometimes I am so busy that I feel sorry for myself. Days all blend together in my overworked mind. During these times of chaos, running is my only freedom. I have been reading a self help book about channeling potential. The author describes a common scene of customers standing in line at a bank. Each person preoccupied with some sort of device. The point of his story was to bring attention to the lack of time that people actually think. The second that boredom sets in, instant entertainment can be found on YouTube, Facebook, or millions of other sites. I always say that running changed my life. Not because I am some ultra health conscious girl now but because I reflect and think about life and problems. On these days that I am a bit overwhelmed with life, running helps me sort out my priorities and give thanks for another day.
