The Itch That Can’t Be Scratched
It’s not that I am not being active. I have a recumbent bike in my bedroom, a bosu ball, a swiss ball, hand weights, yoga mat, etc.
It’s the fact that I cannot run. My main outlet for stress, my time to think, my “me” time. GONE.
I have been meditating to keep my focus. It is helping a lot.
I have always been an avid reader. Right now I am reading 12 Years A Slave. I am a huge Stephen King fan as well (even though he has turned me against clowns FOREVER). I crochet which helps me not eat myself into oblivion.
Being a mom to a teen daughter keeps me busy as well. And my day job totally keeps me busy! But still, I CAN’T RUN. No races, no training, no BLT runs, no swag, no camaraderie, no new running gear…
So, to keep myself moving and raise awareness for a great cause, I am participating in the Defeat Depression Event next month. Because physical fitness rocks! I wonder if wearing my hydration belt would be out of line…. 😉
