As a "blue" person, I'm realizing the need for this running regimen. It allows me a time to unwind. So when my mother asked me about the party decorations before I could even fully get in from my job and the lady at the library was snippy when I wanted to print out the program on their laser printer and they were closing in 15 minutes, I kindly recognized the red flag, told my mom very nicely that when she keeps asking me about things I already know I have to do in a little time period, it makes me more stressed, and I told the library lady, "Thank you" in a nice voice even when she was rude to me, then I put on my running shoes and hit the trail.
Funny thing is, almost halfway the routine, nature called and I had to leave and resume my workout elsewhere. The second "track" was really a dirt road. I've run a trail race before and let me tell you that it's a whole other animal. The rugged terrain is no joke. But, I finished. I felt great. And now I can handle those programs and decorations plus whatever else I have to do tonight. :-)
I think I need this running thing more than it needs me. lol
