As many of my long time followers or friends may know, I spent a very large part of my life running. I LOVED it. I raced myself every day trying to get better. Everything I did was to make myself the best runner.
After my half marathon a couple years ago I lost touch with running. I was very proud of my hard work leading up to the race and my overall performance. I only planned to take a couple weeks off to enjoy the last part of school, but some part of me needed more time off. So that’s what I did– I took some time from running. I didn’t run everyday and only ran every now and then. I continued to exercise in other ways, but I almost hated running for some reason. Generally, I was mad at running for taking up so much of my time, my thoughts, etc. It wasn’t something I loved or longed to do anymore. That was hard for me to understand and deal with, but I am really happy I took some time away from the sport. (I can do another post on this if anyone is interested)
Recently, I have been running very frequently. Not everyday, but as much as I have time for. And I have been loving it. I want to lace up my sneakers and “enjoy” the 95 degree weather. I love how I feel before, during, and after my run. I think running is something I am ready to enjoy and do way more.
I think it’s about time to buy a new pair of running shoes. That is all 🙂 Hope you all are having a nice week and enjoying the super hot weather.
