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

Getting Ready for Next Week's Capital 10 Miler

Sorry I know I've been MIA for a little bit. Life just got super busy all of the sudden. Lil Man turned 3, we took a trip to the beach, and we got some news that sort of knocked me on my rear concerning my family.

So, I had to take a little time to re-group emotionally. And I'm getting there.

As far as running goes, so far so good! I completed my first 10 mile training run yesterday. Yes, I said 10 miles!!! And then today, I was scheduled for a 5 mile pace run (9 minute mile), and I did it! I was super excited and amazed that I was able to do that.

My 10 mile race is next Sunday. I have a timed goal in my head. I always have a timed goal. :) But if I honestly don't reach that goal, or if the race just doesn't feel like I'm in the groove, I'm planning to slow it down and run it as a fun run / training run. I have several Half Marathons on my schedule for this year.

But regardless of the outcome of the race next weekend, I am totally seeing progress.. and I'm super pleased about that!

Last week, I was able to get a run on the beach. (My first run ever on the beach). It was beautiful!
