I was feeling annoyed and frustrated and even contemplated calling it quits to go in and check on her. And right as the thought was going through my mind and I was trying to balance my need to run and my guilt of not being inside with her, I heard some cheers with my Nike+ GPS app. It was just what I needed to keep on running and to support that by doing so, I would be a better, more patient mom.
And guess what, once I got inside my darling daughter was perfectly fine and playing with her uncle. I wasn't missed so my guilt was misplaced. Too bad it took so long for me to overcome it.
2.56 miles on what I can only call a "trail". It isn't a true trail but I need to differentiate this running platform versus my roadsides and treadmills. And it is a little rocky at times and a little uneven. There is rough grassy areas and mudflats. But do any of you have a better descriptive name for my fake trail runs?
Today I am grateful for:
- My darling daughter feeling better
- Getting my run in
- Chutes and Ladders at a sale price
- The enthusiasm of children
- Gifts....especially the gift of time
