Running to relieve stress

I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!  Last werk was a little rough. Somethings happened over the week and I can't stop thinking about them. It's nothing that I want to get into on here but it was pretty rough. I promised a friend we would go for a run this morning before I went to the Pirates game so I stuck with it. 
When I woke up this, morning this was the the first picture on my Pinterest that I saw. (I hate those icons that say someone pinned my pin) this was up when I opened my ap. I needed this quote this morning. 

So I got up and got ready to meet my friend. I was in a hurry and I forgot my inhaler but told myself that I wasn't taking my phone or garmin. I just needed a day to run without technology. I left my house and walked to his. We told each other that we only wanted to go a mile or two.  Half way through we decided to do our usual 3 mile run. It was so nice to go without my watch or phone. I could have used my inhaler but I finished without it. We got to chit chat and listen to our breathing. My favorite ones are the ones that I don't have to worry about how I'm doing. I can just go and get back when I am ready.


With less than 30 days until the marathon, I stopped at Panera yesterday after a tough CrossFit work out. I got a whole grain bagel, fruit and coffee.  I'll take my own peanut butter next time because i love peanut butter. Are you eating Panera while you train?
