Some people reward themselves with chocolate and Dairy Queen. Some people read a book. Some people have alone time. And some people go out with friends for a treat.
But I treat myself by going for a run. The longer the better. If it is by myself even better. The best is on a lonely in the trail in the mountains. If I wake up the next morning all stiff, I know it was a good one.
I sometimes feel selfish when I run so I need to balance life with running.
Others think I’m masochistic but I’m just fueling a need to get out there and go long.
I know I’m not the only one. Go for it. Reward yourself with a run. You’ve earned it.
