I’m sorry it’s been so long since I posted. I have been so thrown off and slammed busy since I started my full time job and moved. It’s been crazy and very emotional. I have been running all my weekday runs with my 25 pound daughter in the jogging stroller…running after being on my feet all day is really tiring in itself…then adding an extra 30ish pounds between my daughter and the jogging stroller. It’s mentally challenging as well as physical. Almost 98% of the time I really want to give it all up and just fall back into my old ways. But, I am a dedicated athlete and runner and I am determined to give this training all I can and get it done. This is something I’ve wanted for months now. I won’t stop until I’ve achieved it. It’s been a blessing to be able to come this far in my running. I was thinking tonight though, whoever thought up running was crazy…I mean come on..I’m going to make my lungs feel like they are going to explode and I’m going to slam all my body weight onto my ankles all at one time!!! Haha! I know half the time during runs I wonder why the heck I even do it…then it’s times like tonight when I got my second wind and felt as if I were able to fly. It was a moment in time where I was just gliding by so easily. I was relaxed and calm. My mind was in it and my body was in sync with my breath. It was great. It’s times like that I remember why I fell so in love with running in the first place. 🙂 I didn’t keep the worlds best pace. And lately my pace has been not where I want it to be…but again, I am doing it. And I’m enjoying myself most of the time.
Thanks for reading,
