Jet Lagged Running

Good morning to you folks. It is currently mid-afternoon for me, as I have now arrived into Dublin, Ireland, where I will be posting from for the next month or so.

Today, I am very very jet lagged. Red eye flights can do that for you. Nonetheless, I am lacing up for a quick run. And by quick, I a mean I will run at a very slow pace over a very short distance, but nonetheless will run.

Look, sometimes just getting out the door and going for your run is a big feat. Not every day can be the day you set a new record, run a little farther or run a bit faster. And that is okay. Those days are just the days you are preparing to hit your new records. Or they are the days you are running, like me, to get your run in.

Truth be told, I’m also running because I want to explore some of my new neighbourhood, as well as hit the internal reset button that running hits for me. Sure, I may be tired as hell. I may only run 3 kilometres. It may take me an eternity. But I know I’ll feel better after I do.

So Happy Running, from Dublin.
