Happy Tuesday! It’s time for another edition of Tuesday Topics. This week’s Tuesday Topic: why are you thankful for running? You can write about this or any running related topic. Remember to link-up with Kim and Zenaida and the bottom of this post.
Why am I thankful for running in 2021? While I’m always thankful for the ability to run, and exercise in general, but even more so this year. Coming off of 2020, I thought this year would be better, and it was in some ways, but in others it was worse.
I’m thankful to running for helping me work through my increased anxiety and levels of stress this year, especially in the Spring. My dad’s health battles earlier in the year were extremely stressful. If I couldn’t run or exercise, I don’t know how I would have been able to deal with everything. Working out was a release and a way for me to get out most of my frustration over the situation.
I’m thankful to running for my virtual support system. I was thankful for this last year and I’m definitely thankful for them again this year. Runners are a bit of a crazy breed, so it’s nice to have friends to talk to about virtual races, returning to in person races, injuries, etc.
Tell me: Why are you thankful for running?
I hope that you have an amazing Thanksgiving with friends and family!
