Back to my run streak. Every day I ran at least 1 mile and everyone that read would know that. I either did it before work or after, but I did it. And I have to say I am pretty darn impressed with myself, because I really didn't think I would make it the whole time. I was tired and beat a lot of the days, but the running I think made me stronger and more focused. And this is the first Holiday season I really felt good going into the final day. Am I exhausted, YES!! Am I done with it all, YES! But am I beaten like normal, NOPE! This morning I almost threw in the towel, I just wanted an hour more of sleep and the thought of going after work crossed my head because I get out at 4 today. But then I thought, well if we are slammed I have to stay, or what if something happens and we are going to James's family tonight, I didn't want to be late because I needed to get a mile in.
So I sucked it up and went out there and did my mile. Surprisingly the weather is perfect, not too cold and not hot at all. I literally ran for the mile and back. It felt good in my lungs and woke me up and I know later I will thank myself for doing that this morning.
Well I am working and then celebrating. I am sure I will post more later and reflect the joy of my night.
Hope everyone enjoys their Christmas Eve and if you are last minute shopping, please be kind to us, we have had a long couple of weeks and most of us are at our breaking point, don't break us, bare with us, we want to help you more than anything, but we want to do it in one piece!!
One of my favorite Christmas movies!!
