Running!

Wednesday, July 18, 2007

I guess it's official that I run now. I like it. And when I can't run I get unhappy, like something is missing from my life. (I don't think I can go back to a life without fitness... it feels so good!)

I ran 5K for the first time about 2 weeks ago. I need to sign up to run an actual 5K race, outside, with people! I also need to get used to running outside, currently all of my adventures in running have been on the treadmill. (But somehow, running outside is a big step.)

Nike+ipod have been great motivators for me... it's satisfying to watch the miles add up! (I've always been a fan of tracking my exercise... it makes me feel very accomplished when I look at my totals for the week!)

    Thanks for the comment on my page, and congrats on your amazing success so far. It is pretty astonishing how much you can change your life when you just start treating your body right, isn't it? That's been my experience for sure! Anyway, I really encourage you to sign up for a 5K. It is so inspiring and fun to be out there with other people, and the adrenaline that you get from being in a race makes it that much easier. Keep up the amazing work, and have fun running on the river in Boston. :)

    Running a 5k.. while when I did it.. I ended up not running .. more like jog/walking but hey I made it past the finish line and I wasn't the slowest either! I was just proud of myself for doing it.. that's a great goal! You go girl!
