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.

Short River Run

I went for a short run this afternoon down by the River Front. I expected the path to be clearer than what it was. I ran into several snow patches. And then just when I thought it was clear I came up on a snow bank that was over 4" tall - ugh. I had to run through the mud to the other path.


Today wasn't my best run, but it wasn't my worst one either. This is my first run outside at a faster pace in the last couple of weeks. I've been running on the treadmill. Apparently I'm going to have to get readjusted to running outside. I did ok. I averaged about a 10 minute mile.

I do however have a 4 Mile race coming up. So I hope I am able to get some outside runs in before the race. I was struggling way too much with my breathing. But it was beautiful today.

I'm glad I was able to get the 3 mile run in. My mood greatly improved after this run.
