|The view from one of my evening runs.|
If you follow my facebook at all, you know that I’ve been running now for over 3 weeks.
I don’t know why it took me so long to motivate myself to do this, I mean, several of my friends started awhile back and I saw then how much it changed their lives for the better…but I finally decided to take the plunge for myself.
Another huge source of motivation for me to do this was Pinterest – THE source for all things awesome and good (follow me if you’d like :-).
One day, I came across this pin:
Incidentally, that day had been awful and I decided enough was enough. I WAS going to run away from it all.
And I did, and I have been 2 – 4 nights a week since. And it is simply amazing.
I love the way I feel after a good run, so I keep doing it. I’m losing inches and getting more toned with each passing day which is awesome…but that’s not even the reason I’m doing it.
I’m doing it because this one thing…running…truly lets me let go of the day. And it’s so liberating.
Crumbs on the floor, forms to mail, bills to pay, laundry to fold, people to call, diapers to change
Now that I’ve started running, I don’t think I’ll stop as long as I’m physically able. It’s the best.
And besides…have you seen the view from here?
|Pretty sweet huh?|
P.S. I signed up for the BlogHer 12 5K today….will you be running with me? 🙂
