Well, I went to bed determined to make sure that today would not be a repeat of yesterday. There is only one true way that I know how to start my day off on a positive note and that is by going for a run. Before I went to bed, I got out my running gear and set my alarm. When it went off this morning, instead of thinking how much nicer another hour of sleep could be, I hopped (ha ha, yeah right, still very pregnant here... more like inchwormed) out of bed to a nice and quiet still sleeping house. I dressed quickly and headed outside for a much needed recovery run. Recovery from the race, recovery from yesterday's day, just recovery in general. It wasn't a super long run, only 3 miles and it definitely wasn't very fast. It was however, exactly what I needed and today has been so much better because of it.
It's really easy to get caught up in negative thoughts and let them ruin your day and sometimes it is okay to be really sad and cry for no apparent reason... but it sure feels a lot better to be happy. I might not always be able to start my day off with a run, but I can definitely start it off with a new attitude because after all, today is not yesterday... it's a brand new day and full of nothing but good possibilities.
