Run for it!!!!

I love to run.

Not an entirely true statement. Sometimes I hate it...a lot. Sometimes I have a great hate for running,
but sometimes I do love it. 

I love it when I have dedicated time to running and I have built up endurance.
I love it because it makes me feel

Grateful that I have the strength to run and that I have a beautiful word to run in.
Running gives me time to think, time to let go of the stress of the day and unwind.
When I come back from running my body feels tired, 
but my brain tells me that I can handle the day.

Running makes me feel connected to a group of people who love/hate running as much as I do.
I know that at any given moment there are a whole slew of people out there pushing themselves to 
 be a little faster,
go a little farther 
and try a little harder.

Other sports make me feel really competitive. I don't feel that way when I run. 
When I am in a race I feel so excited for everyone around me. 
It's so cool that we are all accomplishing a goal together.

Even though it's one of the hardest things for me to do, 
I hope that I will continue to take that first step and keep going, because I really do love how running has influenced my life.

Tonight I had a GREAT run. It's the first time since I started training again that I felt like I was in charge and I could run without dying. It motivated me to put a few designs together:
