Running is Cheaper than Therapy

I got out for a long overdue 4 mile run last night. I’ve been in a funk for a while with my workouts and have been trying to put one foot in front of the other, but just haven’t been ‘feeling it’ or consistent like I did with our Tough Mudder workouts.

I realized last night after I laced up my shoes, threw my headphones in and walked out the door that our mind and bodies WANT and NEED exercise to help relive stress and help our bodies function better. I have noticed a huge difference for sure and I think my body and mind is at the point where I NEED my workouts to thrive. I love this ‘I Run Because’ because it was every thought I had last night before, during and after my run.  And for me its definitely THERAPY and quality time with me!!! :)



Does walking or running help you relieve stress?? 

Can you tell a huge difference??

About Carman

36 year old military wife of 18 years and stay at home mom to 4 incredible kids (3 girls ages 17, 11, 11 and our son is 6). After my 4th, and final baby, I decided I wanted to be more active, healthier, happier, and to be an example to my kids. I joined Weight Watchers and started using the Points Plus program to learn portion control, moderation, and develop healthier habits. I also used the dietSNAPS app to track my meals and it was such a life changer for me to literally *see* what I was putting in my body! Cyndi, Lexy and I created this blog to be accountability partners and that has been a huge key to this journey! I love to cook and I love converting my favorite recipes into a healthier version for my family to enjoy! I love the after effects of exercising :) I love challenging myself to fitness goals to change things up and in doing so I have run numerous 5K/10K's, several half marathons, one full 26.2 marathon, and a Tough Mudder. I love circuit training, weight training, and running sprints. My goal is to inspire others to take their health seriously, and to show how small changes can lead to big results.
