    This morning I completed 4 miles walking with

    my cousin. The weather has hampered my running so, my brain finally kicked in with a solution, now that it's beautiful, let's join a gym. Lol. For my early morning runs when it's dark and also for my weight training this is a necessity, whoever created the 24 hour gym, I'm a...

    Today I ran 18 km (11 miles) .

    The beginning of my day was full of tension and frustration. It has been a cloudy, somewhat cold and rainy day to add to my mood. Shall I run indoors? Shall I go out to the rain? No thunders in the horizon... What the heck? No iPod. Only my water bottle and me.this run is in a...

    So, here I am. Mission accomplished!

    I made it...! 10.19Km before the catcher car caught me...! I had a minor pain in my right leg for the last couple of days which I tried to subdue by taking a few days rest. It looked like I was over it the moment the race started! I felt amazing, one of the most exhilarating...

    My First Beach Run

    I'm spending my July 4th weekend near the beach. I woke up real early this morning, just before dawn, and decided to take short drive to the beach near Pine Knoll Shores, NC, parked and went out for my morning run. Sometime last year, I bought a pair of running sandals and...

    I did my first half marathon in a long time

    this weekend! I was so nervous as it has been a long time but excited as well as it is my favourite race to do! It was the worst conditions possible for me (hot!) but despite that I started of pretty strong and was feeling great to about mile 9! Then my ankle went (an old...

    Today I was up early on a Sunday

    for the first time in so long so I went for an early morning run. I love it when there is no one else around and I can just go into my own little world :)

    Today was urban running.

    Watching tons of people and pretty faces, bodies while running. When I run my troubles are minimal and my emotional pain is mitigated.

    It is dawn and the birds are chirping.

    I am running with the solitude of myself and my shadow. With all the good and bad that my shadow carries, but is me and my run.

    I'm usually not a morning person.

    Today however, I surprised myself. At a pace of 5:35 min/km I managed the 6.3km trail around the beautiful lake Bled. It's really nice to be able to change the running scenery from time to time. It rained the whole time but it did not or could not keep me from going all the...

    Another half marathon.

    ... And yes I made it in the top 20%. BUT the lesson learned today was from a 60 year old fellow runner. Approached me on mile marker 3 ( about 5 km ) and he started making conversation. He told me he was just happy to be there running at his 60 years. Then he smirked , started...

    The moon was in the horizon.

    Birds were chirping anticipating the sunrise. A deer crossed my path when..... Floor! I should have learned to pay attention to rocks in the pavement. Other than my pride, nothing else was hurt. 😄🏃. 8 miles of bliss.

    This morning I went to my usual run.

    However, this is the first time I do this route in a month since I was in a holiday. Last night was an emotionally loaded day and I woke up with those worries in my mind. Great morning for a run and to do some active meditation. The wind was blowing in my face, a freedom...

    Morning dew . Wind on stand still.

    I run every morning. It helps me think clearly

    I don't really run very far - I know it's much

    less than even one mile - but I still feel so accomplished getting home all sweaty and breathless but proud. I've needed another outlet for a long time and running fits perfectly!

    This morning was one of "those" mornings.

    You know, when your alarm goes off and your bed does it's best to convince you to stay. I snoozed once and really wanted to a second time, but reluctantly got up. There are some mornings I'm more willing to get up, but I don't like early mornings, this was neither, don't like...

    I run away from being sad. I run because I'm strong. I run away from being weak. I run because I just made peace. I run away from a fight. I run because I want to be with people. I run away from being lonely. I run for life. I run away from death. No matter what I do, or...

    When I got to the gym tonight I made my mind up

    I mean REALLY run. To run

    I love to run or walk at night. Especially if you glance up at the stars every so often. It clears the stresses of the day right away. I think I might get addicted to it.
