It feels good to be a runner

Call me crazy.  You all do it anyway, it’s not like I don’t know.  After as bad as this morning started off, I had my doubts about hitting the gym this evening.  But I had that hyper drive down inside that said I had to go run.

I am so glad I went.  I knocked out 5.2 miles which isn’t a lot for someone running almost two years.  And it’s exactly 21 miles short of my big day coming up in February when I have my full 26.2.

Some days I get all wrappped up in pace and number of miles, etc…  Today I didn’t care and just ran for the sake of running.  To just run and when you feel stoppping push harder.  And when you’re done, be so tired you hurt all over, but smiling big just cause you do what you love.

About thejollyrunner

There's so much and so little time. The two most important things to know is I suffer from a condition caused Generalized Dystonia and that I love to run. Ironically, two things that don't mix are what now defines me. I have a whole variety of other interests such as my long standing devotion to the Texas Rangers. I am also quite the hunter, fisher, and all around outdoorsman. If I had more time and less dystonia pains, I would fit in more gardening, home improvement, and probably some amatuer astronomy. And lastly, while my life is regrettably being slowed down from the dystonia, I am trying my hand at writing. I have a lot of ideas and it would be nice to see if I have what it takes to create some works worthy of publsihing.
