Running Gives You 'Me' Time

I love to run with a partner, but there’s nothing like running alone. It’s the ‘me’ time that I desperately need.

When you run by yourself, you have time to think. I know many runners who process the issues of the day with several miles on the open road. You have enough time alone to work through whatever bothers you, and by the time you’re home again, you’ll feel mentally refreshed.

If something is weighing on your mind, I say, take it to the streets. Run until you’ve sorted it out. Sometimes the best therapy comes not on a couch, but in running shoes.
