Sunday — is Runday, again!
I could barely sleep on Saturday night, I was so nervous. LOL. I know, it sounds S.I.L.L.Y! But…that’s how I felt. I kept waking up throughout the night, having dreams about me running away from all kinds of stuff. Once I was running away from zombies. Then I was running away from a grizzly bear. Running from a car chasing me. Running, running, running. It was on my mind, and there was only one way to make it stop. I had to R.U.N!
It is finally gorgeous outside in New Jersey. High 60s middle of the day, with lots of sunshine. Perfect running weather. But I’ve been inside for sooo long, during what has felt like an endless winter — that I’m afraid to run outside again. Goofy! Crazy! But that’s where my head is.
5 miles is no small run. Ok, Ok, it’s no Marathon, but…..it’s been MONTHS since I’ve run any further than 3 miles. So, gotta put on my big girl pants, and Get It Done! So that’s what I did. Um…except – in – my – regular – pants. 🙂
It was hard. I was huffing and puffing. Sweating. Lightly cursing under my breath. BUT —- when I was done — ohhhh, when I was done —- I felt like freaking GodZilla! Crushing buildings and terrorizing the streets.
Ahhhh. YESSSSS! THAT’S WHY I LOVE RUNNING!
And the cherry on top of my GodZilla cake is this —-> All those 1.5 and 2 mile runs I have to do this coming week —>pfft, they feel like a piece of cake……..a piece of freakin’ GodZilla cake!
Bring it on! I’m getting this again. I’m changing. Little by little.
Love Love Love!
Ciao for now…..Diane
