Hmm, perhaps after I tackle a 10k, I could train for this half marathon in October- the LA debut! The whole Rock ‘n’ Roll series sounds fun… anything along the route to take my mind off of running is a thumbs up in my book.
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.
the light in this photo makes me want to take many more photos at 7:30 am.
