Yea for chirunning! I am trying to get back into running and it's made it much easier.
For my running tip: When you just don't feel like running, then don't, go for a walk instead or do a really enjoyable run, get a running buddy, take the dog. When I am in a slump I go running on a trail. It takes me a bit to drive there but I love it! There is just something about running in the woods (with pepper spray, cell phone, and hopefully a buddy) that just makes you fee like a "real runner".
Also, if there is something going on that day that you need extra confidence for I always try to run. It's weird because I never feel more beautiful than after a run. Though in fact of course I look awful, but my confidence and self-esteem rises.
