That seems to be the theme of my life these days. Not only do I go running regularly, I also seem to have a lot of things that need doing so I’m running around trying to finish them all.
I have no idea how that happened and when I look back, I cannot pinpoint a moment where I lost control and running (around) became the theme of my life. The good thing about it though, is that I also seem to be getting a lot more accomplished this way.
Yesterday I ran my second half-marathon. I still have a hard time believing I started running and 21km later I stopped. OK, so it lasts much longer for me than it does for many others but I get there in the end (and not as the last person). At what point did my idea to do something for my general fitness rampantly run away and made me a person who can run a half-marathon? I have no idea. I just know I love it. (I don’t love the fact that I have a hard time walking today as my muscles ache somewhat incredibly)
But I believe in there lies the reason why I can run around these days and get a lot done. Even when I don’t feel like I have enough energy, it’s there and I go through my chores and still have time to read more than several months ago.
I understand now how people get hooked on running and never give it up. I sincerely hope I never give it up either as it brought me nothing but good. Ok, except for when I get so hungry I feel I could eat a horse and then I proceed to eat a lot. 🙂
I realize I’ve been rambling in this post but I wanted to share my love of running with you and since I am still tired from yesterday, I can’t get my thoughts to follow a coherent pattern.
In the end, I decided to share the photo of me before the finish line even though running photos generally make you look like you are suffering in hell. 🙂
Btw, I should add here I feel very lucky that the next half-marathon our school is wanting us to go to, is in spring. 😉
