6 miles - Colder, breezy run outside before work.

My running consistency over the past several months has mirrored my emotional state, which has been in the pits. I was hoping to return to more consistent mileage, but over the past couple of months my "black dog" (clinical depression) has become a frequent visitor and gradually built a more permanent place in my life once again. Depression chips away at you slowly and no matter how much I tried I could not shake it off. This has made motivation in most things a struggle.  Now seeing my oldest daughter battling the same issue again put me on a path to destruction that required medical intervention and action. The both of us started a recovery plan this week and hope to rebuild what has been lost. For now we just take it day by day.
