Like a rose trampled on the ground You took the fall And thought of me Above all #arizona #redmountain #trees #stormysky #photography #beautyphotography #amazing

99° but feelin’ fine.. also feeling super sweaty - running is something, y’all. I walked 2 miles and then ran 3 miles today. I used to absolutely dread it. Fortunately tho, I’ve been blessed and also cursed with this health conscious, goal oriented, restrictive mindset of a healthy lifestyle that is so great but also just WHY ME. I thought a lot about this.. and here’s why I’m so grateful for this personality type I’ve got to work with.. Running is hard, taxing, exhausting, but - it is so extremely rewarding and there is absolutely nothing better than a solid 3 mile run and a good sweat. This is when I feel my absolute best, like I could conquer the world. I run to free my mind, push my limits, stay healthy, explore nature, disconnect from the reality of adulting, and get out all of my energy- I tend to be quite the night owl but running tires me out which then allows me to sleep like a baby! Running is my therapy, my outlet. I highly recommend it. Even if you hate it.. start with walking. Run occasionally and keep pushing your limits. Go a little further each time and one day, you’ll get there. Set goals. Don’t give up. I run when it’s 15° and then on days like today when it’s so hot you can’t breathe but it hurts SO good. It’s the most rewarding feeling. So here’s me.. after a three mile run! As happy and as sweaty as can be!
