running in rural ohio.

Have you ever had the urge to just go on a really long run and just escape somewhere? Well that was me this Saturday morning when my body clock woke me up  bright and early at 8:30 (great)

Right now it's 'Finals Week' and everywhere I go, it's like the universe can't help but remind me of it. Everyone's stressing out, and if I'm honest, it's starting to stress me out even though I wasn't stressed out in the first place! So I threw on my running shoes and decided to escape the 'stress bubble' that was building up around me. 
The good thing about going to school in the middle-of-nowhere-Ohio is that you are in the middle-of-nowhere-Ohio. There are tons of trails around my school to explore if you need a break from well... people. It's just you, the occasional herd of cows and some cornfields (a.k.a no one to witness any crazy dancing).  I ended up running for roughly an hour and a half in total, and it was quite honestly one of the best decisions I've made in a while. Beautiful scenery and a playlist that included everything from Hakuna Matata to P.Y.T; what more could I want?

There is something to be said about spending time by yourself doing something you enjoy. Some people play an instrument, and others might dance or draw. I just like running. You can forget about that paper you have due, or that test you have to study for, or anything else that's been niggling away at you, and just do you. All I can say is that I defnitely see more of these runs in the future. At least... before it gets bitterly cold aha.
