I've started this journey before. The journey of running. I conquered some fears in that journey. I have felt strong. I have given up! I have have found a new reason to try it again. I will conquer this crazy thing called running, once and for all! I am determined! It is a crazy thing! This thing that haunts me! This thing that gets to the very core of being afraid. This thing that completely messes with my perfectionistic self!
I have all of these posts swirling around in my head about this journey and where I am at in it right now. But remember I am having a case of "Writer's Block".
I have decided one thing about being healthy. I will sign up for several races, therefore causing me to not give up and to continue this journey of running. I ran my first this last weekend. This weekend was a 2 miler for the American Hear Association. I ran this race before. I conquered a fear by doing it then, but I do admit I was still a little fearful of trying it again. But I did. I shaved 31 seconds off my last time, even at a balmy 18 degrees real feel temp ( I ran this year's at 20:27). This little bit has given me a reason to continue. To get stronger! Jeremy joined me this time, he was a trooper and ran with me for most of the race. But because I run soooooo slow, he was given the green light to finish the race on his own and much quicker. The boys ran the fun run also, they are so proud of their first running awards! Evan has already asked to run in another race! Jeremy, myself and two friends are running a 4 miler in two weeks! That should be very interesting. And I think I may have verbally committed to running a half marathon in September. Holy Cow the thought of that makes me vomit a little each time.
