Tuesday Tidbit: Hit the Trail

Running helps me stay 
on an even keel and 
in an optimistic frame of mind
~Bill Clinton
I am not feeling my best today, but despite the obvious flu symptoms I ran again this morning. Not far but I did run. I also toughed out most of my work day, but had to go home sick this afternoon. I am souping it up and downing lots of liquids. I will get better. I have no desire for my usual sweets and treats, but I couldn't pass on my run. Finally it seems my priorities are straight. Running can't be missed, sweets and treats can be saved for another time. Today, there is not much of a post, so I chose some trail tips from an amazing trail runner. If you haven't hit a trail or don't do it often, you should.
Why I Kick A$$: Of course because I ran at 5:15am
Thankful Three
  1. For a boss who would have let me leave way earlier than I actually left the office
  2. For Tomato soup
  3. Chick flicks in the middle of the day

Missing one day with the flu is fine. Really. That being said, you are a stud. Get well soon.
