Running Far and Strong

This is going to be a blog for me to post all of my running thoughts, efforts, accomplishments, and races. Running is on my mind 24/7, yet I never blog about my running on our Family blog. I think the reason for this is because I am certain that all though my readers love the fact that I run, they don't want to hear about it all the time. They would rather know what is going on with the girls and the fun and silly things they say. So I have started this blog for....me, and for anyone who wants to know what I think about when I run, or why I love it so much. I am hoping that having to post my miles, times, and efforts, I will be more motivated to keep up my running. Since moving to Ky, I have only run a handful of times. It is not because I don't LOVE it anymore, it is not Cause I don't want to. I simply have fallen out of the habit of early morning runs, because I haven't been training for a marathon this summer, which I usually do. And being that I AM NOT a morning person, getting back into the habit with out a running buddy (I miss you Mindy) to meet up with at 5:30 AM, makes it incredibly hard to roll out of bed and run in a new town, with new roads, the humidity and loneliness. I am determined to get my lazy arse back out the door no later then 6:00 Am every morning. After I do it for a week straight, I will be in more of a habit. So wish me luck....

Go, go, go....... I live vicariously through your running so you better start up again. I love hearing your running stories, and have to admit am very jealous. I admit I just do not like to run all that much, wish I did, but alas I don't...
