My New (but Old) BF

I know I know sad sad sad & they are not pretty pink or Asics (I will get them soon) but practical, comfortable & no shin splints!! :)..... I have been wanting to get back into it for a long time, but babies & busy life prevented me, plus my lack of motivation. I am one of those people who dislike the gym, I am a down to earth, outside babe. I wanted to get rid of the last of my baby weight & stay fit to stay young with the girls (& of course for DH) but also for myself. I looove running!!! I know it is not great for your body, but maybe it is the endorphins or something but I love getting out there, music in my ears, running in the fresh air. It is my little bit of space. I try not to think of anything while I am doing it. A lot of times I have my little conversations with God, more me talking than Him of course, but I just find it sooo relaxing. There is no-one nagging me, asking something of me, no preparing food, just me & the tarmac. I can get irritated & cranky if I don't get some endorphins & I have realised that it really helps even with my lack of sleep. I am tired, but I think I am already tired may as well be doing something productive, that makes me feel better about myself. So it is my new BF. Have a great tuesday. Melxx
