Do You Ever Have a Nagging Thought?

Do you ever have a nagging thought that you just can’t shake? I’ve been dealing with one for over a week now and it’s really surprised me. Not the nagging part, the thought part. It’s just sitting there, in the back of my mind, waiting for me to act on it. I haven’t acted on it yet because it scares me. I’ve never had a thought like this before and I just don’t know what to do with it. Anyway, the thought I’ve been having is about running.

Why does this scare me? Because I’m big and I’ve never been a runner. I played field hockey in high school but that was totally different. Running to run is much different than running during a game against your arch rival to get the win. You don’t think about the running then. Besides, that was like 20 years ago – holy crap! I’m also a smoker so my lung capacity isn’t just compromised by me being overweight.

I’m not sure why I’ve been thinking about running but the thought won’t go away. I’ve even run in place a few times to see if that helps chase the thought away but it’s only made it worse. Maybe I’ll go for a run one of these days.
