Ran again today!

Click read more for the rest!

I did my little 1 mile route again today!! Feeling so good about this! Anyone who has known me for any length of time knows that I go through horrible depressions regularly, for years this has happened, and for me running is such a natural anti depressant! It always has been! There was a long period of time in my earlier 20's that I didnt have insurance so I couldnt go to any doctors and there were no meds (at the time even if there were meds I wouldnt of taken them which is a whole nother story) I desperately was in need and want of something that would make me feel better other than drowning myself in alcohol. SO (quit drinking) I started running!! Everyday I'd run, even if it were just around the corner and back. It made me feel amazing for a long time. All up until I got pregnant. Then once again my hormones were way out of wack and I was ginormous. Attempted running once and got lost in a new neighborhood lol. Last time running pregnant! Fast forward to today, yes I do want to lose some weight and be happy with the way my body looks, but most importantly I want to be happy mentally. Running is something that does that for me. Lately its been hard for me to want to get off the couch or out of bed besides a crying a child it takes a lot of prayer. So for me to get up and be running twice now is bigger than it seems at first thought. It has me feeling amazing right now and I dont want this feeling to end! So another day of running a mile down! I'm going to try to make this a daily thing! If you are wanting to run but not wanting to go far, just do what I did! I googled how far is this run or something to that affect and a ton of sites came up where you can put in your address and map your own run, you can make it as big or small as you like, you dont have to map out a mile, just run in a big circle around it till it makes a mile :) So what if your neighbors see you pass 10 times :) At least your out doing something positive for yourself :) Have a good day everyone!
