Welcome to funky town. Population: me.

I am in a funk.  The weather is depressing.  My job has been stressful the last few weeks.  I have let my running slide.  Down into oblivion.

Ok, in reality the funk is not insurmountable.  It hasn’t even been a week yet.  Nonetheless, the idea of sitting in my sweats with tea and my afghan is far more appealing than the frigid cold wind outside.  And so, I have missed a few runs.  This only adds to my funk. Running can defunkify me.  Yet, the gray palette of Ohio winter is a stronger push inside.  Thus, I have a vicious circle-o-funk. Winter funk–>stay inside–>running funk–>cranky mommy–>overuse of sweatpants–>avoiding the one activity that can break funk cycle.

I saw on a post that one runner, trying to find her mojo, liked to go to Pinterest and look up inspirational running quotes.  Now, I know that a good quote can’t get me out the door, but it does remind me of why I love it when I do.

Here are a couple of my favorites:

Really makes you think.

The colors in this just make me happy.

Of all the things in life we are running from, running should not be one of them.
