As part of the The Nutella ‘Spread The Happy’ promotion, I get to share what makes me happy. And this is an easy one. Running.
I think I've run in 40 different countries. I've run through two pregnancies. I've run through snow, rain, sleet and sever humidity. Running is my sanity and my therapy.
When you're a mom and a entrepreneur your schedule can get pretty tangled. Free time doesn't pop up in huge chunks of time. I can't swing a weekly round of golf (5 hours) and it's tough to make the noon yoga express class when conference calls keep popping up on my calendar. But I can always find half and hour in my day for a run. Maybe it's 6:30am before the kids get up, or it's 7pm when my husband is overseeing bath time. Running is flexible and fits in anywhere.
Feet hitting pavement. It's a welcome reminder that I can still play. I don't need headphones and a special app. I just need some open sidewalks. It's amazing how much nicer I am when I get back from a run. A little boost of energy all from lacing up and getting out there.
I know there are other runners out there who get me. Here's a fun recent post-race photo. Sweaty grins after the Brooklyn 1/2 Marathon. By the way, my favorite pre-race breakfast is Nutella on a bagel with banana.
Running might not be your thing. But I bet there's something that comes to mind when you think happy. Maybe it's the kiddos, knitting, karate, or cooking. I'm pretty sure Nutella is on a lot of happy lists out there.
