Embracing The Changes In Life

Someone recently asked me about my running and how I currently feel about it. True, I'm not running 5 days per week as I have in the past. I'm not even running my usual 3. I think my new norm for awhile (maybe forever) might be 2 days a week.

How do I feel about it? I feel liberated. I feel like stepping outside of the model of runner to something bigger. Because I've said it before, and I will say it again, I am more than just a runner.

I went running yesterday for the first time by the river. It was beautiful to run by the frozen snow-covered river. My boss is a runner, and she and I went running after work. She showed me how to slow down my pace to try to increase my endurance to run farther. We ran 3 miles. It was good for me to run 3 miles at a steady pace. Usually when I run, I can't seem to keep the same pace. I want to run longer distances which means I need to build up my endurance.

It feels good to get back into the routine of running/working out again. I packed my work out bag again today and ran after work. The scenery was breath taking. I could hear the ice breaking on the river as it is getting warmer here.

I think my favorite part is running on the bridge across the river. Something about it is exhilarating to me.

I think I'm reaching a place that I'm not running to try to 'lose weight' but simply running 'to run'.

I enjoyed myself out there. Being directionally challenged, I missed my ‘loop’ and kept on running… so I’m not exactly sure how far I ran today. I know it was at least 3 miles. Right now though, my body feels like it was much farther.
