Isn’t it funny how food can bring comfort? I’ve been having a rough week. Running and I are still having issues and without running I feel like I’m on the brink of losing my sanity. I was picking up a prescription medicine at the pharmacy earlier this week and I saw some Easter peeps and old fashion jelly beans (not jelly belly or starburst) on the shelf. I picked them up and took a walk through midtown munching on them – trying to escape the office and my thoughts for just a few minutes.
As soon as I took a bite into the yellow peep, I had a rush of happiness. My memories of Easter Sundays searching for eggs in my childhood home with my sister became so vivid – a rush of happiness ran through me.
Spring is on the horizon and with its reminders of new beginnings, new life and hopefully better running days.
