I'm a runner!

Sunday, November 18, 2012

I have caught the bug, and I proudly call myself a runner. On Thanksgiving morning I will be running my 3rd 5k this year. I'm very excited, this race will be the first race my husband will be running with me!

I'm still in shock sometimes how much this simple exercise has changed me in the last several months. The biggest of all is the way I view my body, I no longer just see my flaws in the mirror. I see a very confident athlete. I can look at my body and say "yes, this body can carry me 3 miles without difficulty". It is no longer I need to lose some here, or tone up there. It is more like, look what I can do now!

This will be my last race until next spring, I'm already looking at doing my first 10k next fall. I have a lot of training to due this winter, adding 3 more miles to my routine and picking up my speed a little....... I told you, I have caught the running bug :)
