Well it happened; I missed yesterdays run and for no good reason. I just forgot! So here I am back on day one. The good news is that I ran just under five miles at an 11 minute mile. I know that isn’t racing speed but pretty good for me.
I had a conversation with a friend this morning about our expectations of people. This really kept me thinking and going during my run. We all tend to have (Well I do) certain expectations of people in our lives. Sometimes this can lead to huge disappointments because people do not live up to these expectations. Truly it isn’t their fault because I am the one who held this idea in my head. So lately I have been trying to except people for who they are and what they can do. I don’t anyone goes out of their way to hurt another person’s feelings (at least I hope not). Don’t you think any given person is doing the best they can on any given day?
As these thoughts are going through my head on my run I also started thinking about the people in my life and how different any given relationship is from another. I have decided this isn’t a bad thing; all of our relationships shouldn’t be the same. We would be missing out on so many things. I think of all of the things I have learned from anyone person and I am thankful for it all. I feel that is kind of sappy, but the original point of this blog is to blog about my thoughts during my daily runs.
On the flip side, I think at some point I figured out I just have to be the person that I am. Lay off of doing things that I think someone would want me to do. Where is the fun in that?
Wow- a long run equals lots of thoughts! So here it is, day one with only another 364 days to go…………………
My run today
