This run tonight was a tough one , not physically but mentally . My lil one met up with me as I started my run and she wanted me to come home because she hasn’t seen me all day . She was at a sleep over last night and I worked all day today so I promised her this will be a quick one and I will be back soon so we can cuddle and spend the evening together .
THIS IS WHAT BEING A MOTHER RUNNER IS !
It is HARD.
Priorities are different when your time is so valued by someone other than yourself .
Should I have turned around and went home with her , probably, but I knew I wouldn’t be long and I needed this quiet time to decompress from my day.
My kids will Always come before any run and this is what I am sure every Mother Runner out there has experienced.
How do you balance life, motherhood and running?
