Taking Off the Training Wheels

Friday, March 15, 2013

This week has been amazing!! The weather has been absolutely perfect. For the first time since September, I have been running outside. The gym has been amazing, running on the treadmill was far less horrible than I thought it would be. But there is just something about running outside that makes me feel alive.

It's like that feeling of taking your training wheels off for the first time. It is scary, you're not sure what to expect but then all of the sudden you get it. It's there and you just go. You feel free, alive, just flat out amazing. I seriously don't get that feeling from ANYTHING else. I just feel like I'm in my element. I am able to be completely present. No interruptions, no questions and I just feel like I am on top of the world. I live in Utah so I know this weather can change at any second but for today it is the best!!!
