Speak da Troof: tomorrow is a new day (thank goodness).

I ran a lot of miles today.  It was long and it was hard - don't get me wrong, it went well, and I ran along streets lit up with Christmas lights, and it really doesn't get much better than that.  This is not an extended whine about how hard the run was.  But I'd forgotten how much really long runs kick me in the face and now I'm really tired.  So I have no more energy for writing.  I don't even have energy for watching Frasier on Netflix.  I barely have the energy to floss, but today will be day 6 of my week long flossing challenge and I will not be defeated.

So I will write about running tomorrow and make tonight simple.  No matter how today went (mine went pretty darn well and I hope yours did, too), you get another chance tomorrow.  Isn't that an amazing gift?  So if today sucked for you, it's over, and you get to try again in just a few hours.  And if today was super awesome for you, then you get a chance to make tomorrow even more awesome.  Maybe long runs make me philosophical (and hungry, let's not forget hungry).  But tonight is one of those nights that I'm so grateful that I get to go to sleep and wake up with another shot at this whole life thing.

  1. Honestly, this is probably one of my favorite posts that you've ever written. I love that about Monday. People rag on Mondays a lot, but I adore starting a new week. A fresh start- full of possibilities and new goals. It's a good thing.

    Long runs make me SO TIRED. Naps are a must on those days!

    Thanks Amylee! You're such a sweetheart.

    And I'm glad I'm not the only one... I slept like a rock after that run! A nap would have been a good call :)
