Thoughts While Running

By Runnergirl Training

A question that I am often asked is what can you think about while running? What keeps you mentally going for miles?

I find that it is a mental journey. Initially, I start out and mentally sort through the thoughts on the forefront of my mind; what to reply to send on an email, errands to run in the afternoon, etc.

After a while, my mind wanders to bigger thoughts such as long term problems I am mentally working through; what to do to further my career, how I can assist a relative with failing health, etc.

After working past the mental hurdles that seem to hem me in, my mind feels fee to fly. The air seems easy to breathe, my feet feel light, and the miles pass quickly.

Time spent in my running shoes does not solve the world hunger crisis or economic issues. Somehow it enables me to get beyond the thoughts and concerns of everyday life that hold me back from being my best. 

Running helps me be the best version of myself. I am grateful to be a runner!

Bali Body is an Australian based company who makes tanning oils and skin care products that are free of parabens and harsh chemicals. They are plant-derived, seed based oils full of vitamin E, rose hip oil and jojoba and much more! I love that their products are vegan and cruelty-free!
I have previously reviewed the Bali Body Natural Tanning and Body Oil and the Bali Body Cacaco Tanning Oil here. The Natural Tanning and Body Oil is a lightweight moisturizer and will bring a tan when skin is in the sun. The Cacaco Tanning Oil gives an instant light bronze look even without sun exposure. If using them I the sun please remember skin protection with SPF lotion.
I personally choose not to expose my skin to direct sun. In 2013 I lost my mom to melanoma skin cancer. It is very aggressive and does horrible things to the body. I use these products without direct sun exposure, to moisturize, give a light glow to my skin and help my skin to be healthy with a flawless …
