I have always enjoyed running. There is great sense of wellbeing when I run. You can almost sense yourself getting in shape. It also helps to clear the mind of all that mental weight that people carry and many times don't realize. There is also that point when endorphins kick in and two things happen. 1) it feels like I can run forever and 2) all pain disappears and my mind goes blank. All thoughts seem to fade away and slight euphoria kicks in. This doesn't happen often simply because it doesn't happen until mile 5 or up for me and I rarely am able to run that far because of time constraints or physical limitations. So, my goal for the next month, is to reinstate the longer distance runs in an attempt to clear my mind and better my overall health.
