Long Run

Today I ran 4 hours on snowmobile trails, ATV trails, and tote roads. I didn't feel like running long today because I was dealing with some personal stress having to do with a grown kid who won't move out and needs to. Anyway, I was feeling distracted and not wanting to run but knew if I did it would make me feel less stressed out. I kind of half-heartedly set out from home toward Parsonsfield. My legs felt fine from the start, but my mind wouldn't relax for quite a few miles. It took about two hours of steady effort, but eventually I was able to let it all go and just relax and enjoy my run. As always, I'm very thankful for the meditative properties of running.
