7:30am...6 miles with Moxie. (Altra Impulse)
Spent the run trying to process what is going on with our society. After listening to the memorial yesterday, dealing with work and family pressures, nagging running pains (and thus lack of inspiration in my runs which used to be my release) and now reading/hearing about the 3rd and 4th mass shooting in our country in a week, I struggle at times to see how we as a society honor God or each other. Maybe my mood recently is just midlife crisis related and realizing that my family is changing and work is less enjoyable/motivational, but looking at the bigger picture society and all the hate (and justification of that hate) is very depressing. I hardly want to get up and don't find much joy...lately my highlight of the day is the evening beer.
Glad I got the run in early, doing yardwork in the blazing sun and heat is hard work and I would not want to run this afternoon.
