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

Hot and Humid 10 Mile Run

I ran with a friend this morning. I'm glad we decided to start an hour earlier. It was hot before Sunrise today, along with lots of humidity.

This run wasn't pretty, but it was completed. The goal for today was distance. We had to switch to a run/walk at about a couple of miles in to help with her breathing. And honestly, this is much harder for me. And my goal for today was to get in a good workout, and that was definitely accomplished. By 5 miles, if I'd known someone on the road, I think I would have had them pick me up and take me back to the car. Yep, between the heat, the sun, and my legs who were protesting, the last 5 miles were a struggle for me.

But, we did it. And she wanted to keep it under a 12:00 average pace which we also did.

Tomorrow is a REST day!

I'm pleased with my 26 miles this week.


  1. Great job getting out there and getting your miles in. It is always better to run with someone on these really hot nasty days..keeps you going :)

    1. Yes, we definitely pushed each other today! :)

  2. Great job finishing what you started out to do! :) That's wonderful that you got to run it with a friend!! :)

    1. Thanks. Yes, I really enjoy getting in my LRs with someone. It sure makes the time out there in the heat more enjoyable :)
