Sometimes, it hurts too much

Some mornings when I get up my shoulder just hurts too much to run. I feel like I am using it as an excuse to not get out and run, but I am just not sure.

This morning is one of those mornings. I am up, out of bed, getting dressed to run. It is 4:55 and I am walking downstairs, but my shoulder is just aching. If my shoulder is aching like this now I know the running is just going to further the pain. So, this morning I will not run.

How I long for the days when my shoulder is no longer part of the decision.
