I ran the other day. Then I signed up for a half marathon. So, I probably should run again.
It's been so long since I've run. Too long to tell you, but I will say that it has been the longest period I have not run in my entire adult life. I call myself a runner, and I love my running group. But I also love sleep. And call myself a sleeper.
"I am a mother, and my time is not my own," I tell my group.
But it is spring, a time for new beginnings. So here goes a new running season.
Now I want to keep the momentum and best use my running time. Have you noticed that one good decision leads to another? It's true. The day I ran, I ate less ice cream. I didn't not eat ice cream, but I ate less. And I cleaned my shower. Just because I felt like I was on a roll.
Time is the one resource we are each given equally.
Since running uses precious time, I want to make it count the most. In the past, I've watched movies from the treadmill (on my weekday runs). But this week, I chose to watch a DVD of a Beth Moore message. And I've got some more messages that I can watch or listen to next week-including 24 Hours is All You Get: Ways to Wisely Use Your Day and podcasts of Sono Harris's messages for weary moms.
I really want my miles to go farther.
How to you make your time go farther while your kids are still little?
