Thoughts of Running

This morning the thoughts of running turned to reality! I have been feeling down about not running. I felt lazy, didn't want to go out in the dark and cold, that's about it for why I have not been running. I felt something was missing in my life and I knew it was the lack of running but I just couldn't get myself out the door.

I have been thinking about it lots lately and this morning I finally bit the bullet and went out in the cold and the dark and got the job done. It was slow! It was short! But nevertheless it was! I racked up 5.12 km in 36:07 which is one of my slowest paces ever at 7:03 min/km. It's a start!

I have decided on a few races that I would like to do this year and listed them to the left here. I have a lot of work to do but I know I can do it! Missing from the list is a full marathon. After running the Calgary Marathon last May I was positive I would do another one. I changed my mind and that is my prerogative! I just feel lazy about committing the time and energy.

I found a fun way to keep track of the ground I will cover this year. Between my 60CSX and my Forerunner 305, I'll be able to keep tabs of all my kilometers. Here's my chart so far!

So far I'm off to a good start and I hope I can keep up the momentum!
