Running for enjoyment
Thursday, February 06, 2014
If you had asked me 3 years ago if I'd be titling a blog called "Running for enjoyment", i'd have called you crazy (or worse!). Back then, I could not even imagine running at all, let alone for enjoyment! But that is the beauty of time - things change. I discovered running, how fun it can be, and in fact how therapeutic it can be. Today I was thinking about my initial runs, and if I could just get to 3 miles in 40 minutes! Now I'm disappointed if I can't do 4 miles in 40 minutes! And today it was a nice 38:10 4 mile run -- just because it was fun and enjoyable! I don't have another race until March 15 -- my birthday -- so this was running for the sake of running! And it felt GOOD!
I know all of you runners know what I am talking about. For those of you wondering, maybe thinking about it -- just start slow, check into Jeff Galloway, and come join in!
