Well today I was my usual forgetful self and totally forgot my Garmin watch. I still completed the run and can give you a pretty close estimate on the stats! It was a beautiful 64 degrees in Denver today 🙂 I ran the first 2.1 miles and walked the rest.

Workout song of the day: “Drive” by Incubus
This used to be one of my favorite songs to play on guitar. My favorite lyric is “I’m beginning to find that when I try myself, my light is found”. This whole year has been about self-discovery for me. As I’ve talked about before, I’m beginning to truly realize that my happiness is not in the control of others but rather within myself. Only I can choose whether I’m happy or not. Others make decisions and I can only react to them. In some sense, this is a very scary thought to come to and yet at the same time quite freeing. I can only be honest about what I see in other people and I have sole control over how I react to it. Life always goes on and right now I’d much rather go through it being optimistic than pessimistic!
