Quote of the day!

I always run alone, away from phones and stress. Running is a major part of my life because it keeps me sane. Michael Roux, Jr., Executive Chef, Le Gavroche, London

This was yesterdays Runners World quote of the day. I can relate only in one way. That I run to keep me sane. I am not sure that it is working, but hey, it is better than the alternative. We all know I hate to run alone. Who would I talk to? I think someone would call 911 if they saw me for miles talking to myself, I just don't like it. See it isn't working.... I AM CRAZY!

I hear a friend I work with say quite often, "when do you find the time to run, I am so busy". "I am busy too,but if it is something you need or want you find the time", is my canned answer back to her. The point to this is we all run or do something that we like just for US. I run for no other reason than it helps bring me back to me. In those busy lives, we loose who we are. We become what everyone else wants us to be.

So thank you running for helping me stay somewhat sane and for giving me the time to be who I was meant to be, ME!

Hi! I must be your fraternal twin, because running keeps me sane, but like you I prefer the company of others too, especially on a long run. There's nothing better for relieving stress than a good hard run. Hey, sorry, I missed Ben's workout this morning. I all intentions of bein there but late last night my daugher reminded me I had to take to to a youth related event early this morning. So, my father duties trumped my workout plans. Hoping next week works out. Happy Running!
