But still, every time I see a runner on the road, I examine the form they keep, the shirt they're wearing, and I always wonder what they're listening to on the iPod.
So yesterday was such a nice day, I decided it was time to take that first step. I donned my walking shoes, my golfing socks, my yoga shorts, my nylon hoodie, and Sean's giant iPod and headed out. I know, how could I not go wrong with the appropriate attire involved?
So I ran. And I kept running! And I didn't die! I actually enjoyed it. I'm a little sore this morning, nothing more than expected, and I feel pretty good.
I've been inspired by so many of my bloggy friends that run. Some are beginners, some are experienced racers, and most are in between. But what I get from each of them is that the trick to running is there is no trick. You just have to run. Even when you don't feel like it.
Maybe I can keep it up for a while and get the most of the beautiful Spring weather. Maybe one day I'll run a marathon. Or maybe I'll give up and just go back to wanting to be a runner. Either way, yesterday was a good day to go running.
