Normally when I go for a run outdoors I bring along my ipod. Today, my iPod battery was dead so I headed out without it. Best. mistake. ever. I loved running without noise! I thought that it would be a dry, sulky experience. It actually made pacing myself easier because I could hear myself breathing and could sync my steps faster. I really love quiet time, but I like to stay busy. Running is perfect thinking time for me :). How do you cope with stress/ how do you stay fit? I used to be a major yogi but lately I've been taking up running and swimming. Switching things up is always an instant motivator for me.
