I'm up to 63 miles of my first running goal to do 100 miles before the end of march. running has become an exciting hobby for me. I still wouldn't call myself a runner, maybe after my 1/2 marathon, but the days i have a planned run i get super nervous and sometimes think i don't want to do it. On the days i'm not supposed to run i miss it and can't wait for my next run. i now have some of the more expensive toys that real "runners" have. THE GARMIN! oh my, i just love this gps system that i wear on my wrist. last week i wanted to run fast and made myself sick, i feel like a little kid just learning life's lessons the hard way. first the shin splits because i didn't want to take a day off and let my body heal, then running so fast i over heated and the latest i can't seem to keep my heart rate monitor from sliding down to my waist. I have to ask the running gods of dailymile .com all kinds of silly questions, thank goodness they are all so helpful!
I still look forward to the day that i can just go out and run 6+ miles and have it be uplifting, then maybe i will call myself a runner!
