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 hip has been Hurting for more than a week now, making me just a little too nervous. It’s hard to describe where it hurts, but what I can say is that it hurts to move it. This alone makes running a little difficult. I ran my 20 miler today, so I’m going to take tomorrow off and try to rest it. I guess we’ll see how it goes. Hopefully I heal quickly.
