Dear Treadmill,

By Lifeasarunningmom @RunningMom6
Remember this sweet love note I sent you last night?
Dear Treadmill,
Well, umm....I missed our date.
I would say I am sorry, but I am not. I was ready to get out of bed. My alarm was silenced and I heard the coffee brewing. I wasn't even fearful of the chilly morning air. Don't laugh too hard, it is a bit chilly for me where I live in the wee hours of the morning. Yes, even in Hawai'i. The thing is, as I was ready to get out of bed my darling daughter started crying some in her sleep and I knew she was having another troubling dream.
She comes first and I wanted to comfort her. And I remembered she had a rough morning the day before so I decided it was better for her to have her Mommy make her breakfast. Her happiness was more important that my morning run.
Yes, when I run at the gym I log more miles. Yes, that makes me feel good. Yes, I love getting a good sweaty stress release session before tackling my workday but right now, it isn't necessary. I know I will run later. Darling daughter and I have established a good afternoon routine. With my current training goal of building base I am fine. I realize I am logging less miles as I run slower on my incline treadmill but I am still getting good time on my feet. And that counts.
I promise to not break too many running dates with you and plan on seeing you tomorrow, just not so dark and early. Until then, make sure others run happy and hard!
Daily Gratitude: I am thankful that my daughter wants to have cuddle time with me.
Daily Affirmation: I am able to balance my daily priorities.
