We all have another chance tomorrow

This was my run tonight.

What I love about running, what I really love about running, is that nothing makes me feel more alive than going out and running hard.

I had a rough day yesterday. It’s an ongoing family issue. It was hard. It sucked. Consciously I know there isn’t a damn thing I can do to change what happened, but I still can’t help but think of things like this:

Dammit, life isn’t that simple. Sometimes things just SUCK and time is the only thing that will heal it.

But in the mean time — a song with a good bass line, my stride opening up behind me and sweat pouring down my face. Those things help.

It’s not just about the endorphins, or the distraction. It’s about feeling capable. About feeling in control of something. About channelling all my negative energy into something strong and positive.

I am a strong person.

And no matter who you are, we all have another chance to be the best person you can be tomorrow.
