As you probably read in my last post, my anxiety made a short cameo appearance this week, and just like last time around I’ve chosen to run to try and burn some of it off.  I was in full taper mode from my now-deferred Sunday triathlon but I tried to maintain a fast pace and not run too far a distance for fear of injuring myself and being unable to continue to burn off energy.  I found myself chanting little mantras to build on the confidence that the exercise endorphins tend to lend me, and by the end of the short run I felt great again.
