I need to vent for a minute…

Running represents more than mileage to me, although I do love watching the little odometer on my Nike plus app spin and spin after a good run.
I know most of this stuff everyone knows and most of you probably have written a similar post which means you can probably relate in some way but I guess I’m just a little sad and frustrated so I’m feeling sappy.
Getting pregnant for the second time, just like the first, has given people permission to provide unsolicited advice, and while I dont’ usually mind, one thing I do mind is when someone tells me…
“You won’t have time to run after the second is born”
To which I reply…
I’ll ALWAYS find time to run.
It’s people like that I feel bad for. They don’t understand because they don’t experience it but running is not just about pushing yourself physically or burning calories. It’s about learning who you are, and in some cases (like mine) healing.
In the short time I’ve NOT been running I have realized just how important that time is and how much I need it. No wait that’s not a strong enough statement..I crave it.
Yes, unsolicited advice giver..there will always be time. I will make time..I will do whatever it takes because that time is MY time.
