I lost that loving feeling...
Tuesday, December 02, 2014
I have been back sliding for about 3 months now if not longer. Not enjoying my running and not caring what went into my mouth. I kept telling my husband that I needed to find my way to enjoy running again and while I was finding some enjoyment in running with my 11 year old who is training to run her first half in March it was still a struggle because she is much faster than me.
Last week the running club that I am part of put out a notice that they were needing more volunteers to help mentor and train the kids to run their first half in March. This really was the answer for me as I needed somewhere to commit myself to and that would force me to get out and away from my desk.
Today was the first day and although it was tough (these kids run without rest breaks and I run using the Jeff Galloway interval method) it was a day that I enjoyed immsensely. I am so excited to see the journey that is put out before me and although I have now run 2 full marathons and 30 half marathons since March 2011, I had lost that loving feeling for myself and for running and today I found it again.
