Running is one of my absolute favorite things to do.
I know i have mentioned my 13.1 mile endeavours before!
I ran 5 miles today.
It was hot.
The wind was against me.
It was hard.
I Loved it!
Running is my exercise. If it’s not hard, then i make it hard.
I also love running cause it’s like my form of meditation.
When I am running, i feel calm.
I figure out my life. Everything seems possible when i am running…
probably because last year at this time running 5 miles didn’t seem possible!
Last year, every morning i would get up and run with my friends, izzse and Tess.
It was fun, but it was torture.
I hate getting up early.
And i hated running.
And then in November i started liking it.
My birthday is in January. For my birthday, i got tons of running gear. I was DYING for spring! So i could start running again.
this summer has been so so hot. I didn’t run through 1/2 of May and all of June and 1/2 of July. then i started running again.
I have mentioned before my 13.1 mile schedule. well, i just finished week 2 and tomorrow i will start off week 3 with a 3-mile run.
my easy run.
last year, a mile and a half was a VICTORY for me!!
Another thing I like about running is that (most) runners are nice. Today I met a man. Just random. He asked me how far i was going and we talked about half-marathons.
A few weeks ago, I met a business man who used to run but now can’t because of lung cancer.
These are people i NEVER would have met if i didn’t run.
But truly, when i get back from a run, I feel motivated and full of peace. It’s really nice.
I also feel good about myself..which is an added plus!!
After my runs, i take a freezing cold shower.
If you ever need something to do, throw on a pair of shoes and run. it doesn’t matter if you run for 10 minutes or for 2 hours(i can’t do that!! :P). You’re still out there in nature, working out and enjoying peace!!!! You will be surprised what God tells you during these moments!!!
All for now,
