Today I learned a valuable lesson. Running + Distraction = Pain. Running often is my outlet to decompress. I can clear my head, let the worries melt away. However, it's a fine line between running it off, and running distracted.
I was puttering along, thinking about how stressed I was. My mind was so jumbled. Thoughts were whizzing through my head. I couldn't find my stride. My feet were heavy. Suddenly, once again, I was airborne. Last time this happened I was in front of the library, at the foot of a few homeless people. This afternoon, my flight was in front of the high school, right after school got out. The witnesses, parents waiting to pick up their kids. Embarrassing. Painful.
