First let me say, “Whew!”
I simply can’t believe I’m running. I’m 41 years old, and while I’ve done a lot of walking (30-60 mins almost every day since 2004) and hiking in that time, I’ve done very little running. Even when I played sports, I was defense and there was still little running. However, this is the first time I’m sitting down and doing running for the sake of running. Had you asked me if I’d be running a year ago, I’d have said, “No way!” But here I am doing it.
Simply put, I’ve been inspired to do this back in January when I [p2p type=”slug” value=”cheering-adventures-at-the-disney-half-marathon” text=”watched friends run the Disney Half Marathon”], but I really didn’t realize it until more recently. On that very neat, and very emotional day, I caught a bug, only it took a few months to settle in and take hold.
And with discussion, some coaxing, and a recommendation by my good friend Katie, I downloaded the C25K app for my iPhone. And here I am, running.
