Saturday morning there were no excuses. DD was home and the kids were still sleeping. I pulled on my running clothes and began to prepare my mind for a run. When I found that myPod was drained of all energy, I reached for hisPod. I plugged in the first set of headphones that I could find but no sound was to be heard. I found another pair of headphones, but still no sound.
I sat in a chair and contemplated skipping the run all together. I had planned for some music to distract me from my thoughts, but clearly that was not going to happen.
After a bit, I gave in. My return to running was overdue. I headed out the door with Garminia strapped to my wrist and, together, we began running a familiar 5 mile loop.
