I used to be an avid runner. Running 4-6 miles was like breathing for me. No sweat, piece of cake. But over the past few years I fell out of practice. I had a minor knee surgery. I had a crazy dog who wasn’t so easy to take on runs. I had million excuses that moved running to the bottom of the to-do list.
But not now. It’s a priority and it feels great. I’ve found a running community that keeps me honest. I’ve found my rhythm and stride. I’ve found happiness again in something I loved for so long.
Track workouts on Tuesdays – well, I don’t love running in circles, but I do like the group that helps keep me motivated.
5:30 am hill work outs on Thursdays- bring it on. (In fact, I feel better the rest of the day.)
Long runs on Saturdays – along Elliot Bay, you barely notice the miles.
And the easy runs in between…stretching my legs, keeping me happy.
It feels good to be back.
