that elle woods really had something when she said, "exercise gives you endorphins, and endorphins make you happy. happy people just don't shoot their husbands."

though the second half of the quote is completely irrelevant to my situation (please disregard it), i do have to wholly agree with the first half of it. exercise really does bring happiness... to me at least. i accomplished something BIG (as far as my recovery goes) yesterday. i exercised. and i don't mean the casual hikes that i have been participating in all summer. i actually felt well enough to go to the gym... for the first time since june. and it felt wonderful.

i was reminded of what it feels like to be an athlete, and i experienced the full-on sweating situation for the first time in a long time. i love pilates.
today, my body is so very sore. and for this, i am grateful.
