FITNESS MUSINGS

Running has made me a better person

I haven’t felt such an over­whelm­ing need to write in a long time.  I find myself think­ing about top­ics to write about every­day, but find­ing the time to put fin­gers to key­board rarely hap­pens. Writ­ing can be such an ardu­ous task–checking for spelling, gram­mar, and typos–that I’ve become dis­gusted with the entire thing, so I’ve  avoid the sit­u­a­tion. But I’ve decided that my craft is worth the pain, and I will jump back into this whole thing.

I feel like so much has hap­pened since my last post. I’m a run­ner now. Recently, I com­pleted my first 10K, and I’ve run a few 5K races before that. Next sum­mer, I am train­ing for my first half-marathon, and I still shock myself when I hear those words come out of my mouth.

I’ve never been a run­ner. I dreaded run­ning in gym class and couldn’t stand the task. When I got older, I started to admire the peace­ful­ness I would see on the face of run­ners and decided I wanted that expe­ri­ence. Now I can’t stop myself. Run­ning is a sport where you can eas­ily see improve­ment. Once you’ve met one goal, another one can be cre­ated to con­quer. I’m a very goal-oriented per­son, and I love tak­ing down a new chal­lenge. Run­ning allow me to set a goal, work toward it, and com­plete it. I couldn’t be happier.

And with each goal that I con­quer, I become more con­fi­dent in myself and what I can accomplish–on and off the trail.
