What I Do To Keep Me Sane During The Day

I love to read and I love to run. I found this book at Borders and bought it on a whim. I think this one of the best books that I've ever read for me. It's nothing fancy, not even very big, but I think it's exactly what I needed in my life. This guy has done things that I will never come close to accomplishing in my life and that's ok, especially after reading how hard it was for him. What I connected with him was his passion to run and his need to run. I realized after finishing this last night, how much I mentally need to run as well as physically. I've always looked at working out as a bonus if I get to it, but as life is more and more hectic, I'm finding what a crabby person I am on the days I don't workout. And how life just moves along easier when I do. It's hard to get up early and it's hard to run, but the high I have afterwards and continues to stay with me is becoming as necessary for me as air. I love his quotes and his humor, but I really love his honesty. I'm not a great runner, but I have alot of goals I want to accomplish and I'm grateful to have read this to give me the push to really focus on them. If you love to run, read it, it's truely inspiring!
