A New Year RUN.
New Year’s Day was the day that was going to kick off my training. It was SO easy saying that a couple of weeks ago… almost in complete defiance… I did nothing remotely athletic for the last 2 1/2 weeks.
I had January 1st circled on my calendar as THE DAY to dust my sneakers off and GET MOVING! And then today – it was here. 2010.
So… this morning I set off.
I can honestly say that I have not run since September. I was excited to get “back out there,” but also terrified. This is a challenge I am totally putting myself up to in 2010…
I ran 2 miles this morning.
I can say – it KICKED MY BUTT. But I did it. I did it with my Livestrong gear on… enjoying the beautiful snowy morning and embracing the New Year.
Nobody was out this morning. It was just me. My iPod wasn’t charged up, so I set out with nothing – just me and my inner thoughts. You know what? It felt good. It felt REAL good. It wasn’t like I ran 10 miles or anything earth-shattering… but I did what I could do on Day 1.
And so… my running journey has begun…
RUN. Check. Check.
