Today was just one of those days. Ugh, what a moody, cranky Monday. It started off just fine. Yummy coffee made by M just like every morning (gratitude for M!). Sun was shining on the drive to work, traffic was light, no big deal. But wham, something hit my mood around 9am and I derailed myself pretty much for the rest of the work day. Nothing too big, just some minor irritations. It went a little something like this…
But once the work day ended, I checked myself, put on my running shoes and set out to get my day back. Not the best run ever, but it made a world of difference. I haven’t done a solo run quite a long time. It felt good to put on music and just go. Like a lot of people, I process when I run. I sorted through all the mundane thoughts that I let sabotage my day. Then I went through the list of what I’m happy for. Happy for the beach, happy for legs that can take me on a run, happy for the light, happy for the other people out running to motivate me and thankful be out in the fresh air.
I ungracefully trudged through high tide, got nice and sweaty and ran into some old friends on the way home. By the time I got home, 6 miles of frustration was burned off.
Just in time for takeout Mexican tailgate style watching the sunset with M. Now settled into the couch watching Masterpiece Theater. And fingers crossed I can bring about a better Tuesday!
