Those in our area have been blessed with incredible weather recently. I’m talking 12C and higher. It had been a welcomed, sudden change after snow the past two weekend and a stretch of 4 or more days of rain. We have made sure to get out and enjoy it. We just never know when the next rain stretch may come.
With the sun being out I had no excuse but to get out and get running. The Sun Run is fast approaching next month and I am beginning to freak out a
I am NOT a runner. I loathed and despised it in school. Ask any of my gym teachers. I’d try my best, but I was not built to run. Now give me a sport where I could smash things or tackle people and that was a whole other story. I saw a tank top recently that I want to get. It said something along the lines of “I am not a runner. If you see me running, you best start running too!”
It felt so good to get out and move. Dare I say that I am beginning to like jogging? I am still not a runner but I do try, and go at more of a jogging pace. I go at my pace. It also helps that my daughter loves being in the stroller, once we get moving, and watch the world zoom past her. That brings me joy, seeing her so happy.
Ultimately my goal next month is to just finish the big run. We are doing it as a family. I know I will be far from the fastest person. I may even be the slowest. I just want to cross that finish line.
Do any of you have any tips for me? I think my biggest fear is getting blisters. Is there anything I can do to help prevent that? I also know I need to get more comfortable running hear.
Anyone else have a run coming up, or is anyone else in the area doing the Sun Run next month?
