I am currently training for the Seattle Rock N Roll Marathon with my sister (Katie) and a friend. When I don't have a race in the near future, I just imagine that a marathon or half marathon is coming up for me to train for, and I usually find one to sign up for. All of my family runs (both of my parents, my sister, and my two brothers).
Running is my passion, my joy, my life. I'm not fast, but that isn't what it's about. Running gives me a chance to relax, unwind, think, and just feel good. The runner's high is an amazing thing that everyone should experience. It's a great way to stay/get fit, but I also want to use this blog to keep me in check to not neglect my stretching and strength workouts. Running is a sport about self improvement. It is about inspiration.
Starting in May… Tomorrow… I will get fit. Not necessarily a healthy weight, but the right kind of weight. The posts from fitness blogs have inspired me. I AM a runner, but not much else. This month (and summer) I need to work on flexibility and strength as well. I never stretch or really workout. Tonight I will make out a workout plan for the month. I just need to think of it as a necessity to get ready for my marathon in like 7.5 weeks (I think). Now anyone following me may get the complaints AND triumphs of me in strength workout mode… Which has never really occurred before. Best of luck to everyone that made May goals!!
