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.
As I grow older with my family, I realize that life is constantly changing. I am constantly changing. And learning to embrace the change definitely makes for an easier transition. For probably the first time in my life, I am

Treadmill Running

It's been a long time since my last post! I've been busy and preoccupied lately. In January, I was able to get in a few frigid runs. After my last below 20 degree run, I decided I would stick with the treadmill until the temps warmed up some. Before the latest snow storms, I was able to sneak in an afternoon run down by the River. It was an enjoyable run.


I hate the treadmill. As soon as I get on, I want to get off. But I was able to get in two short runs this week. I ran 3 miles on Monday and 3 miles on Friday. I've also been trying to add in some strength training.

I plan on registering for my first race this year. It's the Run 4 Luck. It's a 4 mile race in Lititz in March. I ran it last year. I hope to do a little better this year. Although my time last year was respectable for me (about a 10 minute mile). I still hope to beat it.

I'm considering going for an outside run tomorrow, but it will depend on how much melting and refreezing we have. I don't want to deal with any black ice. I'd rather play it safe when it comes to that. I hear more snow may be on the way. I supposed I need to become friends with the treadmill if I want to get some runs in.
