I use running as an outlet to go out there and clear my head. Since I am on the computer all day long at work and stuck behind a desk, running helps me to get outside and enjoy the fresh air. All day long, I need to meet deadlines and perform certain tasks. Running helps me to unplug and unwind.
Whenever I have a rough day or a problem that needs to be worked on, going for a run helps me to think it out and come to a solution. When I miss a day or two, my legs start aching for a run. My wife also tells me I can be a little moody. She agrees with me that running helps me to manage life.
How does running or exercise affect other aspects of your life?
