There, I admit it: running is running my life. I run to live, and I sometimes feel as though I live to run. I'll never be a seeded or elite runner, but, that's not why I run. I run to keep my joints healthy, try to keep my weight under control, deal with high cholesterol and heart health. I wasn't always a runner; I started late in life, but I love my endorphins! I'm passionate about this sport; I can't stop talking about it; I have my own running team!
However, my training schedule is taking a toll. Lately, I've been experiencing severe drowsiness and fight falling asleep at my desk as early as mid-morning (used to be at 2:26 p.m. almost on the dot daily). I know it's because I don't get enough sleep, and I don't sleep well.
So, after this season's commitments and races are done, I promised myself I'll take it easier next season. That's a good six months out, but, I've already cut out, or cut back, a few events between now and then.
Do you ever feel as though something you're passionate about actually runs your life?
