    So it went well. Haven't felt any pain today.

    Got to the gym, foam rolled and stretched. Then I saw a girl who I am currently in a step challenge with (it's a Fitbit thing) when I got on the treadmill to walk, my legs took over and I had the best run since my half marathon! (I'm currently working back up my Milage from the...

    I did it! Done my first sub 2hr half marathon!

    So pleased.. Official time was 1hr 59mins 39 seconds.... Really really chuffed. That was Sunday, tomorrow's Thursday and my legs were still too achy to run this morning but I'm hoping to get out for a run tomorrow... Happy running everyone x

    My smile increased as I put one foot in front

    of the other, it felt surreal but yet awesome at the same time. That one moment I didn't feel so damn bad and I rediscovered the joy I've been missing. Damn I feel so damn happy for once

    This is it! I made it.

    ..! My first half-marathon accomplished at just a little over my target (2hours 3minutes) but the most important thing is: unlike last year, my 1st 10K race, this was completely injury free! I'm ready to go running again tomorrow! How awesome is that? Am I happy...?! YES...

    I feel so lucky to be out running at sunrise on

    a Saturday, while so many are still snuggled beneath the covers of their beds. I absolutely love to run and get that adrenaline pumping early in the morning. It gives me sense of freedom and happiness. A complete zen. It always helps to make my problems magically disappear...

    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...

    Ran 4.5 Miles Yesterday Not bad given I had

    run next to nothing since grade school. I signed up for a 5k race and a 10 k race in the next couple of months. Given I am 3/4 of the way to 10 k already, I am thinking to do a half marathon by year end. So how did I do it? I reported last year about my success in getting in...

    Ignore the restless sleep interrupted by

    It is such a stress relief to run.

    I love explore new trails, especially through the woods. There is something so comforting about the lighting and the life in the trees.

    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 run by myself, or with a partner.

    Sometimes I run because of my partner. I have an apartment, and a black lab, and sometimes I need to get her out a little bit, even if it is pretty cold outside. She does really well, she's just really excitable I also have a gym membership that I often use. I'm finally...

    Thursday, I had a great experience.

    I ran. It was cold outside (about 30 degrees or so), and I figured I'd run with my beautiful doggy for a few miles then call it quits after doing just enough to tire her out. I often run outside in the cold for her sake (being cooped in an apartment all day) when I'd rather...

    January 1st, 2015! On the road.

    Did 16 miles this morning without realizing it.

    When the mind is garbled, running will allow you to escape. If only temporary, the process can be a wonderful method of therapy. The outcome a stop-gap.

    Yes, I love it so much Everyday I try to run.

    However, I am the slowest runner on earth. I'm so slow, I get embarrassed when people see me run. So, I pretend to HATE running. During gym when we have to run I groan and tell my friends "ew why this is gross" and etc. And during Water polo practice when we do dry land stuff...

    I've been resting just like I'm suppose to (even

    when I don't want to!) and my peroneals feel better today. Still stiff, but no pain. I know I'm not ready to hit the pavement yet, but maybe a little treadmill run? Maybe? Dang, it's suppose to be leg day too. Decisions, decisions. So maybe a walk, not a run, can risk serious...

    I just had a sweet run.

    My right calf is pretty sore, it feels like tendinopathy so I'm using RICE, of course. Got my leg up on a chair with an ice pack, my beer and cobb salad and then I'm going to tape it up and I won't run for a few days. I need to go to a running store and get a gait analysis and...

    Ran my first mile last night.

    I look forward to when I can run half a marathon again without feeling as if my heart is going to jump out of my chest. The feeling of freedom is what motivates me. One mile down, many more to go. 🙂
