I truly dislike running.
I don’t get the runner’s high you are suppose to experience at the end of a run.
I get exhaustion, a dehydration headache, and sore legs.
Two months into my training and I keep waiting for this to get easier.
Yesterday I went for a 7 mile run in the neighborhood per the running calender I am adhering to.
It was tough. I was out of breath practically the whole run and was complaining to myself the entire time.
To make matters worse, a boy on a unicycle passed me.
I couldn’t even make that up.
I wanted to push him over.
Only problem was…I couldn’t catch him so I just watched him cycle away.
Before kids, my husband and I completed a marathon.
I was 26 and in shape.
Now eleven years and several kids later, I’m trying to run just half that distance and struggling.
I’m 37 after all. A bit old to chase a dream?
Take a look at this article I saw in the paper.
