So, meet left and right. These are my running shoes. (Yes, I Iive in BSU nation!)
Today starts another 12 week journey with my running. (Round 2, I like to call it.) Training for my second half marathon. I did this for the first time last spring and surprised myself in more ways than one. I was taken back when I discovered what my body was capable of learning and doing. In fact, I'm not sure I really thought I was going to make it through that run the day of the race, until I made it to the point where I could see the end. The victory lap. It was then that I realized I could do anything I trained my body to do. Will the next 12 weeks be easy? Not every step nor every run. But will it be rewarding and give me that feeling again of self mastery? Absolutely! So, having not run consistently on any type of schedule but merely for enjoyment over the past year, I'm ready to embark on yet another challenge. Another adventure. Why? Because I have legs and feet that can run, I have lungs that can breathe, and because, I am a runner!
