So, I'm doing it--- just not very well.
I've never run in my life. I chase my son or a soccer ball from time to time. But I never understood a runner's high, or why people would run around a track. Turns out a big reason could be that I stink at it. Perhaps I knew this secretly and I'm just not seeing it in living color.
But I'm not going to give up. I'm just going to have to take things more slowly than I figured. I also need to dig out my knee brace. I've got bad knees and feet, so I have to be careful, but not as careful as I've been.
We haven't signed up for Bloomsday yet. But I did fill out the papers for the Missoula 1/2 marathon. My goal is to complete that... 1/2 running it. I'm aiming at walking 2 miles a day and running/jogging (fast walking) some points through out that. To get me use to it. I can't make the entire 1/2 mile loop by our house yet, but that's my first goal. Hope to reach that by the 1st of February. (Only thing holding me back on that would be snow/ice as I don't have a treadmill.)
