i'm just exaggerating a little with the picture above but i sure could use a double...a double espresso! this week has actually flown by but still, i'm always ready for the weekend, especially as the warmer weather begins to take full effect. on tap for this weekend, at least 120 bike miles between both days. probably a good 70 miles or more in the hills and a 50 miler the next day, locale to be determined later.
i love running in the morning. i do a lot of thinking on my runs and can usually work out just about anything that is bugging me. i solve the problems of the world on my runs. on my run this morning, i got to thinking about how all of this running began. i've been running for about 20 years now but probably "really" running for about 13 years. it started with wanting to lose a little weight, tighten up, get a HOT BODY, all vain reasons. my oh my, how priorities evolve over the years. if you ask me now why i run, i will tell you, because i love to run, because it keeps me sane, because it sets my mood for the rest of the day, it helps me think clearer, overall, it just makes me feel centered. i knew the moment i crossed the finish line at my first marathon, the disney marathon in 1998, that there was nothing that could stop me. i knew from that moment on, that i could do ANYTHING i set my mind to and thinking back, i have reached every goal, personal and training wise, that i have set for myself.
i honestly believe that running improved my quality of life ten fold. looking back at my school years, i lacked focus something awful in elementary school and in high school. thinking back on that now, i probably had some issues with a.d.d.but didn't know it. focusing was a huge problem for me. however, around the time i started college, i began to dabble a bit in running, and my grades began to improve drastically. i had finally found the one thing that helped me to focus and at that time, the only thing i really did physically was run.
when i finished my run this morning, i had a big smile on my face. i'm so happy i found running or maybe it found me. we'll never part ways, i'm sure.
