This blog is about juggling a busy career, marriage, a love of running, a passion for water, and a desire to be more fit and healthy. It is about everyday and how we balance the expected in life with the unexpected and keep on "RUNin'". I am not that extraordinary or facing anything you aren't; just taking care of an aging parent and my 6 cats. Learning to roll with it and hang on for the ride, hopefully with a little humor and a dash of sarcasm!

Theme for today! Any guesses? That's right I am tired. My body, my legs, my mind; so tomorrow I will be doing something I have not done in months. I am taking a rest day. That means no strength training, no run, no walking for miles. I am just going to get up and go to work. Oh yeah also I will see my chiro for my weekly appointment. I think a rest day will help me power through the rest of my strength training sessions this week, my race on Saturday, and my scheduled long run on Sunday. The idea of all of those without a rest day is frankly exhausting. Plus I did a lot of leg work today with my strength training I need a day to marinate, don't I?
Do you think rest days are valuable? How often do you rest? Today I am grateful for laughter with friends, family and colleagues. Who isn't right? Hope your week is going well.
