My first run back yesterday was the best first post-marathon run ever.  No creakiness or soreness.  Right towards the end of my run my right hammy felt a little tired.  But no worries.

I normally love running because it is my me time and gives me a chance to slow down my thoughts, process them and figure things out.  I don’t ever run with music because I like sorting through the thoughts in my head.

This morning’s run was different for me.   In a good way.  Strange to describe, but this morning’s run was all about me running away from me and my own thoughts.  And it worked.  For 53 minutes I stopped thinking and processing.  And it was exactly what I needed.
