this is what I look like after I run 5 miles.
look at those sexy pits.
Face is red.
Running, love hate relationship.
So unlike beer, which is a love love relationship.
But in order to eat and drink I must first run or workout.
The thing about running is that it is a competition with your self. It really is the strangest thing.
You run, then you think, "man, this sucks. I hate this. I really am not enjoying myself." run a bit farther. " Man, it's hot"
"I have to poop"
"ok, maybe I can run to the next bathroom."
At this point, for me, it is a catch-22. I know have to run or crap myself. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in this mantra for running.
Run so that you can find a place to poo.
or pee…usually it's poo.
As I run, I also often wonder if it gets easier or more enjoyable. After 3 years of running I still don't jump out of bed, slap on sunscreen and announce, "I'll be out enjoying my run!"
I usually try to put it off as long as possible then think of excuses as to why I shouldn't go.
running is one of the most rewarding things I've ever done for myself.
I started with Couch to 5k. I had never run…ever….not even to escape a snake in the road.
I kept at it and did it.
My legs have never felt stronger.
my stomach/core has never been flatter or stronger.
there is no more super seat spread when i sit down in the car.
Give it a try.
It costs close to nothing, you can do it anywhere
slow and steady wins the race.
if you have a hard time slow down, you are only racing with yourself.
