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

When The Road And Reality Meet

I noticed something about myself - when I use my FitSnap App or post about my runs, I have a tendency to only post the pace when I feel that they are a 'decent' pace for me.

But you know, not every run is a 10 minute mile or less. So to only show my 'faster' pace runs... well.. it isn't a true representation or me or my running. And it got me to thinking about how I should be proud of all of my workouts - regardless of pace or distance. When I am trail running, I don't really think about pace. I would like to do the same thing when it comes to road running. Of course I want to improve. But I don't want to get hung up on pace. For me that is one big different between trail and road running - and I think it's one reason why I am enjoying trail running so much right now. Because it's just about the run...

I overslept this morning. It was super humid. I felt like I was literally running in a cloud.



I had dreams of an awesome faster 3-4 mile run since I didn't have time for a 5 miler that I had originally planned.

But this is where the road and reality meet...



Yeah, so that faster run didn't happen :) But this is where the reality comes in. I want to be real with myself and with you.


Slow or fast, long or short... it's my run.. and I own it.
