Last week I was feeling less than ideal. I was tired, cranky, and really low on energy. My tendency toward hypoglycemia was kicking it up a notch or two. I wondered to myself... what is the deal?! Why do I feel so yucky? Yesterday morning I think I figured it out.
Hello?!? I hadn't been running!
Until yesterday, the last time I had been running was Monday, May 5. Wednesday I couldn't pry myself out of bed. Friday I had to babysit a friend's baby early in the morning. Then last Monday I was in Colorado for a friend's wedding (check out the red rocks at Red Rocks!). I guess sometimes you don't realize how great something is until it's gone, eh? No wonder people say that all the time.
Sheesh... lo and behold... Yesterday morning, though I was crazy tired and didn't really want to get up, I did, and, when I got back from my run, I felt AWESOME!! My energy was back. Life was great! I thought... huh... maybe I'll keep this running thing up.
