Got suspended from work today, and was really cross! I thought "maybe I will skip tonight's run and just go for a beer" then had a change of hart, mainly because I wanted to try my new Garmin forerunner 110. The run was great for taking my mind of stupid work, and my pace was good sometimes down to 6 min miles! I love the garmin, and hate work.
So, if your life goes all wonky a run is a good option. :0)
