We've been so busy lately that exercise has moved down the priority list. Its only been a few weeks, but I've already noticed the tremendous impact exercise makes on my mood and general wellbeing. I'm feeling more and more sluggish every day that goes by where I'd rather hit the hay then jump around and get sweaty.
Today was a typical morning at work: no running water, insufficient change for the register, non-functioning Internet, and food missing from my order. After work, we received unfortunate news regarding my immigration status.. Now it turns out I have to get a document stamped by the Dominican Embassy in Chicago; how does that make sense?
I came home feeling drained, but something came across me. I forced my lethargic self to snap out of it and go for a run. In the rain. Something I would normally never do. But the light drizzle made the weather feel almost refreshing - something that just doesn't happen in the nearly unbareable humidity! It wasn't a very long run, not even a medium one, but it definitely turned my evening around.
The hardest part is always getting dressed and out the door. As hurricane season is now approaching, I'm glad I discovered that running in the rain isn't so bad after all; it actually feels kinda good.
