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.

First Double Digit Dreadmill Run

So I'm pretty much terrified of running in the dark alone. I've been telling myself that I was doing my long run this Wednesday morning. But last night I psyched myself out. I set my alarm for 5am and told myself I was getting on the treadmill. I'd never run more than 6 miles on the treadmill.

I had to make 2 bathroom pitstops, but overall this was just a typical gut it out long run.

I had sent a running buddy a text earlier and she text me back and told me to do either 9 or 11 miles for 9/11. I got it in my head to do 11 since I needed to run 2 hours today.

I pushed the last mile a little too fast but I just wanted off!

But Long Run completed for the day!
