The only way to finish is to Start.

And the running begins. Unfortunately I say begins, because it definitely came to a halt after my 1/2 marathon in May last year. I'm not sure why, because I've come to the conclusion that I really do like to run. Don't get me wrong, there are some days I have horrible runs and I hate it. But, for the most part once I take that first stride I'm addicted. The thing is, I think I'm the type of person that if I don't have something to work toward (besides losing a few pounds), or have some kind of competition, I get bored. And that is why all my hard work, all the endurance I built up last year came to an end once I crossed that finish line. There was nothing more to work toward and sadly I didn't run once after that...until today. It feels so great, I just want to go back out and run again. The plan is to do another 1/2 marathon this year in the spring...I might just have to sign up for one in the fall to keep me going :)

Just signed up again for the Windermere...think about it! I am totally with you on the running thing. I have been having not so great runs this week but I am trying to push myself to break that 2:30 time goal! Good Luck:)
