I posted about Couch to 5K and my fancy new runners a few weeks back, and I have to tell you, I didn’t think it would last. Honestly, I thought I’d run for about a week, start missing my cozy bed in the mornings, and slowly start sleeping through my exercise alarm. I never thought it would stick.
Its true, that did happen. I stared at the digital 6:30 and cursed the day I decided that running before work was a good idea. I hate being rushed in the mornings, and I ALSO hate getting out of bed. So I figured, well, that’s it for my running career. Two lousy weeks and I’m giving up already.
FALSE. Instead, I’ve found myself hitting the pavement as soon as I get home from work. The more I run, the better I feel. The more I run, the more energy I have. The more I run, THE MORE I FEEL LIKE RUNNING. What have you been keeping from me, fellow runners? This running high is AWESOME.
This was on my run home the other day. I had to stop. The sky was crazy, and my iPhone camera didn’t even do the colours justice. But I’ve found something that makes me happy, and guys, its not food**! Its RUNNING. What the hell?
What makes YOU happy?
**Well, it still is food. But I’ve found something ELSE that keeps me happy. That doesn’t involve stuffing my face.
