I sit dressed for a run that hasn't happened, yet. I've scheduled bills getting paid, set up the budget, started payroll & sales taxes, workmen's comp & 4-H National Invitational rooming arrangements. I've emailed, posted on FB & reviewed upcoming races. I ran the dishwasher, washed extra dishes, cleaned my bathroom & emptied the dryer. I've pulled items from the freezer & planned dinner. I took kids to school after making their breakfast & packing their lunches. I've feed the dog, watered the cats & made breakfast & lunch for my sick hubby. I still have a lot more to do on my never-ending list. I stop for school pick ups & still contemplate getting in my run, with no guilty conscience, today.
I ordered running gear & felt guilty as I saw the cost... but running keeps me sane & healthy to take care of my family & most of the house... before I physically leave the house & go to work.
Running is selfish? Maybe... but I tell myself it's an investment in the family, too.
