Running on Empty

Usually, running on empty is something to be avoided.

Getting stuck on some country backroad with an empty gas tank.

Exhaustion and lack of sleep due to a newborn who’s been up crying and feeding all night.

Being spiritually depleted from serving serving serving without simply BEING in the presence.

But sometimes running on empty is a good thing.

Especially when referring to one’s bladder on a run during pregnancy.

Trust me.

I know.

Ducked into the public library to use the facilities the other day 3 miles into a 5 miler, sweaty and red, with old school running stroller that contained my sleeping child.

I ran 2.97 miles on “Full.”

The 2.03 miles on “Empty” were much more enjoyable 🙂

So be sure to run on empty once in a while.

You’re welcome.
