Sometimes Rest Will Be Forced Upon You

One of the things I really enjoy is an early morning run. I’m able to get up and out of the house before anyone is awake and hit the road running.

My mind becomes focused on completing the run within half an hour. Running is a blast.

And yet I’ve suddenly been sidelined. I’ve been forced to rest.

Ever been there?

I’ve been forced to stop running and rest because of a foot injury. There are days it kills to walk.

I knew something had to be done so I’ve cut back on running, almost to the point of quitting.

This isn’t what I wanted. I wanted to keep running. To stay fit. To log the miles.

But here I am. Sitting and waiting for my feet to heal.
