I absolutely have a love/hate relationship with running. I’m not a natural, I’m not fast, and I’m okay with that. So, I have never been a “runner,” but post-college I have had a few cycles where I slowly, slowly build up my endurance enough to begin to enjoy the act of running (to typically lose it a few months later). Something brings me back. This time, with some encouragement from friends, and an inspiration to run for a close-to-home cause, was just the blend that I needed to get out there. The runners high afterward was amazing… almost enough to make me crave more.

Congrats! I love/hate to run, too! Depends on the surface. Speed walking has been more my thing since my ankles give my trouble at times but I’m training for a half marathon!
Nice to find you!
