Always run downhill.
We often find ourselves completely overwhelmed by life. Deadlines need to be met, laundry washed, dishes cleaned, homework finished, friends hugged, children bathed, spouses dated, blog posts written. But once in a while, we hit a lull. A time of peace. A break. Whether it’s a vacation week, or a free hour after lunch, use it. Find what you need most, and chase it. If that’s rest, rest. If it’s socialization, socialize. If it’s fitness, work out. Whatever. When the uphill of life ends and the easy downhill approaches, make the most of it. Run.
