The latter part of this year, I came up with the idea of becomming a runner. It was almost like a joke, because at previous times, throughout my life, I would rather do anything, then run. I never expected to like running either. It was a long time coming!
I have rough days. I have lazy days. And, then there are days when I feel like reverting back to the person who couldnt fathom running. But I pushed on. And wouldnt you know it, I actually LIKE running now.
I trck myself before heading out, by telling myself, just run 1 mile, and then you can go home if you like. Well guess what, somewhere around 3/4s of a mile, my body gets into the groove, and I actually feel like I can run forever.
The runner’s high afterwards, is absolutely amazing. I love it, and for that feeling alone I will keep running.
120 miles for 2011! Who would’ve thought. Here’s to 120 miles and MORE for 2012.
Happy New Year!
