Grateful Sunday: The End of A Run

I talk a lot about running ... probably because I'm always doing it or thinking about it ... but also for the lifestyle benefits any type of training offers. Even though I love running, on days like today when I really wanted to skip my run and watch football on the couch, I hit the road on logged my miles. The reason was simple - I wanted that feeling of "I did it!" that comes at the end of every run. No matter how fast I ended up or if I got awful stitches in the middle of the greenway, the feeling at the finish makes it all worth it.

It's the same with any goal: at some point you are going to want to quit. The feeling may come before you even get started or it may surface when you're closest to the finish line. When I think I can't, I remember the feeling I have at the end of my runs and usually I can muster up enough energy to chase the goal a little longer.

So was it worth it today? Absolutely.
Here's proof:
