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.

10K on Saturday

So I'm registered for the 10K this weekend. The farthest that I have run/walked has been 4.1 miles since I have started back running. This will be the first time that I have done a race without doing the distance first. My goal - first is just to finish - second I would like to run the majority of it - third I would like to come in under 1:15:00.

Regardless it will be a challenge, but one that I am excited about completing .

  1. Good luck on your 10K!
    My husband and I are training now/again for the Hershey Half Marathon in Oct. We are in the relay which amounts to each of us running basically a 10K. I'm so far behind where I was this same time last year. I'm getting discouraged and worried that I won't be able to do the HHM a second time.
    I hope you reach your goal this weekend. Run well!

  2. I also signed up for the Hershey Half - what was I thinking! My goal is not to get picked up by the bus since there is a time limit this year. I've yet to do a half - this should be interesting :)

    I hear ya on the not being where you were last year. Hang in there and keep at it...
