For about a year now, I've had this reoccurring dream about running. In my dream, I am fit and strong and I'm running and running for miles on end without getting the least bit winded. My body is toned and fit, nothing jiggles, my legs don't hurt. I just feel completely calm and at peace with myself and the world. It's such a wonderful feeling! My feet barely touch the ground as I run through different landscapes. I feel like I could go on forever!
Last night, I had this same dream again. I was running in the rain. I remember feeling so incredibly free as the rain poured down on me and hit my face. I remember what it sounded like when my sneakers hit the wet pavement as I ran through the city, strong and fit.
Every time when I wake up from a dream like this, I feel incredible. I feel like my body is telling me to keep on moving towards my goal and to get fitter and healthier. I definitely want to become a runner, I've known that for a while now but I have been ignoring what my mind is trying to tell me. I've been meaning to start the Couch to 5K Challenge for a while now, and now I feel it's the right time. I want to challenge myself to make my dream of becoming a runner come true!
(By the way, week 1 of the Tame Your Sweet Tooth Challenge is going well! I have made some eye-opening discoveries. Week 1 will be over on Saturday and I'll share my insights with you then. Then it's on to week 2 and eliminating sugar from my diet for a few weeks. I'm excited to see how it'll go!)
