So … I officially started running. As I’ve briefly mentioned a bit on the blog, I’ve been thinking about running for the past few months ever since David and I went to San Francisco, CA to support his sisters in the Nike Women’s Marathon last October. In January, I learned that Disneyland is hosting a half marathon in September and I decided to take the plunge and start running. I have 6 full months to train for the half marathon in September and yesterday was my first, official run. It wasn’t easy but it was fun … and off I go toward becoming a runner.
Let’s be real here … y’all know I am the laziest mofo on the planet. I don’t do anything … ever. But, once upon a time … many, many moons ago … I used to run recreationally. My favorite part of the run, to be honest, was the music in my playlist. I whipped together a pretty decent playlist for my first run so that helped a lot. No lie, it wasn’t easy. I didn’t run the entire time … I had to walk briskly a lot … but I’m moving. I’m feeling the run a bit today but not too bad … I think I’m gonna go run again today. I’m really trying to start out slow so that I don’t injure myself. I honestly feel that in 6 months time, I’ll be ready to do the half marathon.
If any of y’all runners out there have advice, tips, food and/or music suggestions, feel free to pass them along. This is new for me so it’s exciting. The excitement will wear off eventually … but I still plan on achieving my goal in September. Heaven help me ;)
No plans for tonight … after my run yesterday, I was wiped. I may be wiped again tonight so … we’ll see. It’s Friday, y’all. I hope you have a great weekend!
