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.
My sister just called me the “priest of exercise” as she confessed that she failed to do any exercise today… I’m not sure if this is a good thing or a bad thing, but I will take it as a compliment. I do love to exercise… Well, mostly I love to run. Tomorrow is a Toomthrab Challenge. I have convinced my track team to come out to my house and run up a giant hill that is exactly a mile long and climbs about 500 ft. It’s pretty insane. The running group I’m in (Challenge Accepted) has a record board of every time run up it. My oldest brother has the record of 7:10! Which seems slow for a mile, but my brother can run close to a four minute mile when on a track, so…. Yeah. Tomorrow should be fun with the track group!
