Running Therapy

by Meghann on August 5, 2009

Boy did I need a run this morning.

Running is seriously like therapy.  Instead of spilling your life stories to a Doctor, you’re spilling them out on the pavement. The pavement is great because it doesn’t talk back, it only listens. 

I managed to knock out 4 miles at a relatively decent pace and organize my head a little.

After my shower I discovered a little surprise waiting in my closet for me.


Maddie climbed into my hamper all by her self. I could hear her whining that she couldn’t see me while I was in the shower. She stopped halfway through and I am assuming that was when she settled  into the hamper. My heart got a little bigger when I saw her in there. :)

Lately I have been getting a kick out of making bowls from containers that only have so  much left of it contents. Last night I took the Oikos container that had less then a 1/3 of a cup left and added some Fat Free Milk, 1/3 cup Rolled Oats, Mini Chocolate Chips, Crushed Walnuts, Cinnamon, & Goji Berries.


I let it sit in the fridge over night and this morning added fresh Strawberries, Blueberries and ground Flax Seed on top.


Ashley gave me a great idea the other week on saving the plastic containers. I know its not a new idea but I like the idea of saving the containers so when I have guests over I can send them home with left overs and not worry about losing any tupperware. The Oikos container was washed this morning and will be patiently waiting in the cabinet for future use.

I am a big believer in running therapy, cleaning therapy and shopping therapy. Did I forget to mention I dropped over $150 on pointless ‘essentials’ on Monday before my parents drove me to Ocala? Don’t worry I already plan to return some things.

What do you consider your ‘therapy?’
