Endorphins, gotta love them!

Isn't it amazing how rejuvenating a run, even a short run, can be? I am in the midst of a 5 day stretch at work. The first 3-12's were rough. Exhausting. But today I had just under an hour free due to meetings (really boring ones :-P) I had to attend and did a quick change and got in just over 4 miles. It was FANTASTIC! I felt like a new person when I got back. Physically it was a boost, but mentally it was rejuvenating. Exactly what I needed to reset myself to be positive about the rest of the week :). But to my coworkers, I should apologize ... I skipped a shower for an extra half mile ;-). Have you ever done that?

And lastly, but by no means least!!! A HUGE shout out to Michael @ http://slowlytri-ing.blogspot.com/ on becoming a Marathoner!!!!!

I love it when I can slip in a run. All too often, I stall and don't get around to it, and I'm so much happier when I actually get out and go. And yes, I've definitely skipped the shower. :)

Way to not use the 12 hour shifts as an excuse and sneak in a run! I don't get to run at lunch at work but I've skipped showers at home more out of laziness and getting tired of showering 2x per day.

I am thinking about running on my lunch tomarrow because of my after work commitments. A shower would not happen for me after but I am seriously considering it.

I totally skip showering all the time! In fact I did it today! I had to make up 13 miles on the stationary bike that I was supposed to do last night, but my husband got a flat tire, so I did it today. I did it during my 2-hour break and I did not shower after. I bet I smelled lovely in front of the classroom!
