seeing green

Never underestimate the power that one good workout will have on your mind. Keeping the dream alive is half the battle.

my RW quote of the day

this rang true to me last night. i had the need for speed running through my veins and wanted to hit up my favorite trail for a nice run on a post-rainy-day night. it was the perfect setting for a mind altering occasion.

a dense feeling of the rain’s aftermath in the air. an extra squishy feeling underneath from the water soaked earth. listening to the cadence of my breathing and the birds singing their goodnight songs. so much GREEN i felt like i was seeing double at some points. and the feeling of “i still got this” kicking my @$$ :0)

5 months to the day postpartum. it was weird getting back into running after the babes arrived. your bodies all weird inside and out. time is sparse, if not nonexistent. and i really felt like i was physically starting back at square one, but mentally so much further along.

i kept the dream alive and can say that after last night’s run, trekking my way through the trails that i feel like i can run with my eyes closed, it felt damn good to be back in the game.

now, who’s ready for a race?!
