happy biggest loser tuesday bloggerville!
will you be watching tonight?
so i did something radical today…
i got a wild hair up my bum & decided to run.
now lemme backtrack a bit…
during my 3rd attempt @ weight watchers (about a year & a half ago) & when i was utilizing walking as my only form of exercise – i decided i wanted to try & run. i got about 6 weeks into the c25k (couch to 5k) program & had an *encounter* with a dog. i was physically unharmed but i let it totally derail me mentally. although i have my suspicions that i more likely used it as an excuse to quit because i was REALLY struggling…
anywho – ever since then the desire to run has never left me but has TOTALLY eluded me. it’s one of those things i really wanna do for some reason yet am terrified to really put myself out there for.
i have written about it before even here on this blog.
as i said, today i gotta wild hair.
i have been thinking about it a lot lately & today i asked myself what the frig i was waiting for? what is the worst thing that can happen? i am not able to run very far or very fast? well duh… of course i won’t. but i will never be that runner i envision myself being if i don’t get my ass out there.
so i got dressed, opened my front door, and decided i would just run until i couldn’t run anymore.
i ran 1.4 miles!
i was winded & my legs felt like jello but by golly i was freakin’ running.
i ever surpassed these two walkers & i have to admit that made me feel like the shit!
so it’s a start & further than i have ever run – even when i was doing c25k!
i am 3 ½ months away from turning 42 but i am telling you – i am in the best shape of my life & feel better than i EVER have!
it truly is never too late to change your life!
peace, l♥ve & carpe the fuck outta the diem!
