oh what a feelin’

oh what a feelin’

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.


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


About Diane

Ciao! My name is Diane. I'm a wife, a mom, a working professional, and a Weight Watcher from New Jersey. I started blogging in 2011, at 45 years old, when I was training for my first Half Marathon at Rutgers on April 22, 2012. Since then, I've lost 80 pounds, completed my Half Marathon goal and gone on to train for and run my very first Full Marathon. On Jan 13, 2013, I ran the Disney Marathon in Orlando, Fl! What an incredible day. As the saying goes -- "The person who starts the race is not the same person who finishes the race." I am forever changed! So now we move on to the next phase of this journey! Come along. We're in this together!! Ciao for now!
