I am now officially addicted to running!
The pump-up music before the race. Tons of people in brightly colored clothing buzzing around and smiling. Strollers and iPods and little 8 year olds that I know are going to school me. Then there’s the adrenaline that kicks in and running never felt so easy.
Last Saturday Jon and I ran our first ever 10K. The race took place on a stretch of beach. Waves crashing, fresh sea air and dogs playing in the sand…
Can you tell that I LOVED it!?!?
In fact, I already signed up for another 10K that takes place a month from now and on Monday I started training for a half marathon in July that takes place on the same beach. If my knees hold up then I will definitely be doing it.
My friend Kristen, who is 20-something weeks pregnant beat us by about 8 minutes – crazy! She’s a running machine!
