Run, Run, Run, Runaway

20 Apr

I’ve been forcing myself to run lately. And I’m kinda liking it.

I’ve never been a fan of running. Even when I knowingly joined the track team in high school, for not one but TWO years. Although I have to admit joining the team had very little to do with running. It had very much do with a certain boy and a certain track sweatshirt (see above). Totally worth it for that sweatshirt alone. But I digress…

Anyways, I consider myself a very active person who works out almost everyday. Hiking, biking, rollerblading, kickboxing, tae-boing (correct verbage? hahaha!), elliptical-ing, walking, Spinning, strength training, Jillian Michaels-ing, shopping til I drop…I’m down for any of these things at anytime. But running? Ehhhh…

But, thanks to the inspiration of some very good (and very fit) friends, I am newly inspired. Sarah is a crazy multi-marathoner. Jaymee runs various races ending in the letter “K.” Heather and Angie did 13.1 miles like it was nothing. I mean, come on! How can you have friends like this and not be totally motivated? Plus, Jaymee just introduced me to the most hilarious/inspiring running blog called SkinnyRunner (I think I’ve read almost half her blog already, I feel an obsession coming on!).

I just wanted to put this out there, if for no other reason than to remind myself months from now, oh yeah, I did do that newfangled workout trend called running. Go me. HA!

    Ann-Marie, your posts are the best! I will be home May 8th/9th, mother’s day weekend. Will you be around? We need a bi-monthly, or a bi-yearly in my situation.
