Another damp and dreary day here in the city… I really have no complaints though because it’s about 60 degrees out! I went for a run in the park decked out in full winter underarmour gear and needless to say I was sweating before I even hit mile 1. It’s seriously so nice in the park in the mornings though, I really have to take some pictures for you guys pretty soon. It’s a huge wonderland of red, yellow and orange trees lining the prettiest ponds and flower gardens. Honestly I think it’s my favorite part of living in Manhattan. Yeah, the bars, restaurants, shopping, etc. is awesome, but the thing that I enjoy most is being outdoors and the park is my own little sanctuary away from the hustle and bustle of it all. It reminds me of my home back in Connecticut and is just really comforting.
When I came home the roommate was in the kitchen again. He has changed his morning schedule and is there the whole timeI am trying to get ready in the morning now. Grrrr I guess I’ll just have to reclaim my territory on Monday and start making stovetop oats again. 😈
When I was running this morning I started thinking about how happy I am about where my life is right now. 🙂 Work might be crazy sometimes, having roommates can sometimes be hard, but you know what? That stuff doesn’t even matter. I have a great boyfriend, family, friends, good health, lots of energy and my whole life ahead of me! I think running is really an essential component of my happiness too… it helps me clear my min, get rid of stress and focus on what’s really important. I like listening to music sometimes when I run, but I really miss out of the soothing effect of running when I do that. Is anyone else like that? Do you prefer to run with an ipod/music, or do you prefer to tranquility of your thoughts??
