sefkhet - what some call a scrape, we call proof that nothing can stop a runner! Good job on finishing the run and hope you heal quickly.

Real runners have stories like this to tell! Of falling down and getting right back up. Those scratches and bumps are little badges that represent your hard work and commitment to your new sport! Cool!

Three half marathons later, I got a number. Half Fanatic #9292. :)
More turtle than hare...
Yesterday, I actually thought "oh good, I get to run tomorrow". That is the FIRST TIME EVER that I have had that thought. It's a major breakthrough for me.
I just feel good that I started this and that I am trying something completely new and different and challenging - I've always been slightly envious of runners looking all fit and strong, getting that 'runners high' you always hear about, and let's not forget the cool running gear! Somewhere along the way I thought, why CANT I be in that club?
On the road back
I may not go fast but I go.
I have a love/hate relationship with running. I do it, but sometimes I love to hate it.
I can't believe I actually ran for 20 minutes and didn't die. For the first time in my entire life I ran a mile without stopping!! The first time in my entire life I can say I ran for 2 miles!!
A bad run is better than good sit on the couch.
I'm slower than a herd of turtles stampeding through peanut butter, but I run.

...running is a lifestyle. It's no longer just a 9 or 10 week experiment. It is a part of who I am and what I do.
I love this quote!
