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.
I feel like I’ve been MIA. My lack of running is too depressing, and it turn out that when I don’t run I over eat and do no exercise whatsoever. I need to get back on the horse (figuratively, of course. I’m not a huge fan of real horses). So tomorrow I will attempt 20 miles. Go big or go home, right? This is probably a great act of stupidity, but it won’t be the first time :). Sadly, my ankle has developed shooting pains… I’m falling apart. Time to run.
