It Pays to Run

So after the ice storm and arctic blast, 37 degrees was beginning to feel a little like spring... But today was a beautiful day! It is 72 and sunny!!!! I could actually sleep in shorts, wear a short sleeve shirt to school today, did not need to wear a sweater outside, And best of all, could go for a run!

I don't know about you, but running is a huge stress reliever for me. I love the sun shining on my face. I love listening to music and running to the beat. I love how I feel afterwards. But best of all, it pays.

The neighborhood I live in is not very big at all, so if I don't feel like venturing out into the trailor park across the street, I usually have to run the full neighborhood twice. But I don't mind. Every time I have gone out for a run, I come back with at least some change. So, of course you know now about my obsession for picking up change on the ground, so when I'm running it's no different.

Today I found 57 cents! And one was a shiny New Mexico quarter! I felt so accomplished. So rich! If I ran for 30 minutes every day I would make almost $4 a week!! And if I did that for a year, I could rake in $208! Not bad for some exercise. :D

Running and loving it,
