Day 1 of the next phase of New Year...New Me!!

Monday, January 23, 2012

I can't believe I actually did it, but I actually ran today. My girls and I went on a walk and we decided to run around the pond, then after a "short" walk to catch my breath, we "ran" through the woods, then we ran around the other pond and then did the same thing on the way back. I say I "ran", but it was more a fast walk/slow jog, but it was the first time I have done anything even remotely close to running in a LONG, LONG time...and it felt wonderful...except for the "I can't breath" part....and I CAN"T WAIT TO DO IT AGAIN!!!
I have read other peoples blogs about starting to run but never thought I could be one of those people...but here I am. I can't wait until tomorrow so I can go running again. Maybe there really is something to this running thing!!

    40girl...If I can do it anyone can. Like I said, it was not a "run", it was more like a really slow jog...but it felt great and I can't wait to go again this evening!! emoticon emoticon

    That's wonderful! I am very scared of running, so I am so impressed that you were able to accomplish that! That is very encouraging, and I hope I will be able to do the same thing soon! emoticon
