Cheaper than therapy
A friend once said that running is cheaper than therapy. I never knew what she meant until now. There’s this weird thing that happens when you run: You deal with stuff. I can’t help but see a run as a metaphor for my life. There are moments when it feels amazing, and there are moments when I want to quit. I get tired. I get frustrated. I get elated. I get peaceful. But through it all, I just have to keep going. Maybe that sounds a little too poetic to you, but many a runs have helped me work through emotional stuff better than any therapist could.
