Yesterday, I concluded my blog with these words:
"I love my runs! I get to reflect and grow! "
UH... Hello? I said what? That I love my runs?? Say it isn't so! Did I really say "LOVE" in the same sentences as RUNS? Hmmm. I guess I have a short memory! Did I not recently say that I am "not a runner"-- that "I don't like running" -- that I had selected doing a triathlon in September because I don't like running that much?
When did I go from not liking running to saying that I love running without even thinking about it! And that is exactly what happened! I wrote off the cuff. And later I read the blog again and what jumped out was that last statement. I know I have been looking forward to exercising. I know that I am enjoying my runs. I know that movement is now going to be a staple. But thinking that I would ever say that I LOVE RUNNING was not a goal! I guess that is what I call a special bonus.
BTW... another confession... I was sneaking a peak at a half-marathon website yesterday... and wondering if that amount of miles is in me. And then I sneaked a peek (aka lurked) at other SP pages of people who have run or are going to run half-marathons, and wondered some more. Hmmmm. I guess that is another special bonus!
I love catching myself in the midst of change! Kind of fun to watch.
And you? What have been some of your special bonus moments?
