Running for perspective

Tonight I was lucky to get out for a run. Events conspired to make it possible. Food in the fridge so an early dinner forSunny and me, Hubby came home at a reasonable time and it was daylight and dry.
I needed to get out. Do you know how it is when your head is just buzzing and cluttered with small worries? Things that shouldn’t matter but won’t go away?
Running for me helps to sort all that out. Being on a hill and seeing a distant wide horizon literally helps me to see the bigger picture. Layer after layer of rolling hills and fields brings perspective to my thoughts. Summer wild flowers and the soft blue of the summer evening sky bring brightness to my emotions.
I’m never going to be an athlete and I’ll never be a fast runner. Although I may not be good for running, running is good for me ( and everyone around me who would otherwise be stuck with my snappiness!)
If you aren’t a runner but have been thinking about it, why not give it a go?

Hi my name is julie and I took up running at the age of 46! Hence 'mawil' Middle Aged Woman In Lycra. I did it at first because someone asked me to do a charity run with them. I couldn't run at all, but pride wouldn't let me be seen to be unable to run so I started a walk run programme. I stuck with it and to my surprise I found that I liked it- after a couple of weeks of progress I was hooked! My blog is about my progress in running and how I fit it in with the rest of my life.
