Running is both a hobby and a passion of mine. I love running. Still, it often seems like a love/hate relationship. There are days when I love running and I can’t wait to be outside with my feet hitting the pavement-just me and the outdoors (and maybe some uplifting music).
Then there are days when I make excuses, drag my feet, justify (I can justify almost anything especially if it is about shopping-just ask my husband), and make choices that make running not an option. I’d be lying if I said I always want to run and look forward to runs. Especially on cold, dark winter nights. Especially on February 28th when it has been cold, dark, and winter for months now. Most of those days I still go for a run. The reality is when I’m done I’m so glad I went. There are no excuses or justifications that can make that untrue. In the end I love running more than I hate running.
Today while making up a snow day at tech camp for school, I was introduced to Google Storybuilder. The only story I could think of practicing with was between myself and running. Because I’m sure I’m not the only person with days like these, click the link to “hear” the conversations between me and running on days when I don’t feel like running. On those days you don’t want to run remember this story. It has a happy ending.
