Who is this person??

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

I recently found a running group in my town and got up the nerve to try it. I've been hooked ever since...it's so great to have people to run with. It has definitely made me enjoy running more than ever before. As we were running this morning, I was thinking "I could run forever". Then, I thought about the whole situation...5:30 am, 10 degrees, dark, snowy. How ironic that I, of all people, would be thinking I could run forever or that I would even want to run a little further. When the run leader said we'd go about 4 miles, 3.8 or so, I was actually disappointed we weren't going further. WHO IS THIS PERSON? Two years ago, I was saying: "I'm not going to run" "I can't run" "I only run when something with big teeth is chasing me" And even a couple months ago, despite having been running for over a year, I was saying "I'm not a runner". Guess what? I'm a RUNNER and I'm HAPPY/THRILLED/PROUD about it! emoticon emoticon

    You are inspiring! Thanks for sharing such a positive blog! I cannot run myself (physical limitations), but this inspires me to decide that I am an exerciser! Will work on that. emoticon
