-In the beginning I was embarrassed to run in public.
-3 years, many 5k’s/10k’s, a half and a full marathon later….I still have a hard time running the first 2 miles(not because of other people…just physically). After the first 2 miles are out of the way it gets easier for me…kind of.
-I have to make myself run every time. Knowing what a difference it makes in every area of my life, it really seems that lacing up my shoes & getting out the door would be a “non-decision.”
-I think it’s unfair that I’ve been running for 3 years & my husband has been running for only 1 year….yet he is much faster and can run farther than me. He literally “runs circles” around me. He will run ahead of me & then circle back to me many times during our weekly long run. (I’m actually very proud of him.)
-quote from my daughter….”When most parents say they are going to run to the store…that means they are going to get in the car and go buy something at the store. When MY parents say they are going to run to the store, it might mean that they are LITERALLY going to physically RUN to the store!” 🙂
-Support from friends, family & even strangers makes a huge difference. I’m not sure that I would still be running without them. I’ll blog about that one day.
-I have received COMMENTS on my last few blog entries!!!…and that makes me very happy!
