Post-Hawaii Depression

…it’s a real thing.  I thought I was jet lagged, but it’s been over a week since I got home so that’s not much of an excuse.  Maybe I’m experiencing fatigue from a severe decline in Vitamin D, though more likely I’m detoxing from the fabulous family I was surrounded by for a whole week.  Either way, I can’t get out of bed.

It’s bad.  I only got in 2 of my 3 weekday runs, and though that doesn’t sound terrible, each run was such an effort.  It felt like I was running with bricks tied to my ankles. For serious.

So, when I slept through my alarm this morning for my third run of the week, I decided to give in.  I am clearly recovering from something, be it a week full of activities and fun, missing my family, or both.  I’ll take the weekend to relax, sleep, and run if I want.  When Monday comes, I’m going to be back at it, and with a much better attitude.  Fingers crossed this plan works!

Here’s a glimpse of what I’m missing…

I’m a pretty lucky lady.  When I get down on myself or the state of the world, I just remember these smiling faces; they can turn any frown upside down.  Of all the things I am thankful for in my life, this bunch is at the top of the list.  And the great news is, my family keeps expanding!

What are you most thankful for?

Have a great weekend!
