#sometimeslifeishard

I still cry sometimes.... and that’s ok. Crying is a good release of stress. 
My emotions are indicators of what I need to pay more attention to in my life. They are the nerve endings of my soul. 
I’m thankful that I have a way of knowing when it’s all too much and maybe I need to slow down or find more balance with some things to ease the stress. 
I’m learning to listen instead of suppress. #emotions #sometimeslifeishard #sometimesicry #learningtolisten #selfloveisntalwayseasy #somethingsgetmedown #imdoingok #lifeisstillgood #thesunwillshineagain

This is my, "I'm not so sure about this..." 😬 face.

I got this nifty CamelBak hydration pack for running in prep for my ultra in October. I've used a handheld bottle before but honestly hate it - running even a little off-balance drives me bonkers.

So, I took the pack for a test run today and folks....ugh. I knew I might have a break-in period, getting used to running with a pack, but I didn't know it would feel THAT different. Just a small water bag that weighs next to nothing feels like 10 extra pounds when you're tired and fatigued.

I don't think it helps that today I wasn't really feeling a run anyway. I've been taking it easy the past week, working through some glute issues, and my motivation has also been slacking off. I only ran a couple miles with this thing today to see what it would be like before taking it for a real long run tomorrow...here's hoping tomorrow I'm more in the mood to work.

Luckily, the best thing about running, is that tomorrow's run is a blank slate. I can let today's run go, and go into tomorrow's with a fresh mindset - and hopefully fresh legs.

Much like this photo - shot after running to my car from  work in the rain...POURING rain.  LIFE Will pour on you - just as this rain did.  Youll feel It is.  It Will be uncomfortable It Will be draining and youll be tired and happy when youve made It to the otherside - or in this photos case the car. 
Its in these moments that we LIVE.  That we profrom at our most excellence because we dont have a choice but to just do It.  And come out stronger.  Wet... But stronger... With a sense of pride that you made It. 
Dont be afraid to live, get uncomfortable breathe and smile  in the end.
