I believe that even the people "addicted to running", really don't actually think it's fun. They just do it because they know they should.
I still hate running, but now it's more of a love/hate relationship, and I can feel a little improvement in my breathing and muscles. I am giving a lot of credit to our running trainer, Allison. I also thank my sweet running girlfriends, Vanessa, Kali and Kasey, who are my accountability partners. I am running for two causes now, which makes it SO much more tolerable!!
Let me just tell you. I should have someone photograph my "run face". I was running with Erin and she asked me if I was okay. I was running on the street in Snyder and had several people ask me the next day if I was okay when I was running. I have to ask people to not comment on my face while I run. It's bad; I just have a gnarly face when I run that expresses my feelings well.
I am running the St. Patrick's Day 10K on March 12th for the Scott & White Children's Hospital and Children's Miracle Network. We are on Team Landry's Legacy, so I cannot wait to run in honor of this precious boy. Please help us as we raise money for the NICU.
I am also running the Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon in Dallas (YES, that is 13 miles) on March 27th. (I ask myself why a lot. Well, every single time I run actually.) But now I am raising money for Holden Uganda, so it's a little better to think about. A $1 per mile pledge would change a few lives. How cool is it that $13 can share a lot of love? Plus, it'll make me a lot more excited at 5pm after work each day, as I lace up my running shoes. ;)
Running is such an odd thing for me. I wouldn't even be running if it weren't for Holden's life the way it is. We did get a really cool running stroller (thanks to my shower hostesses), but I doubt I would be running like this with it.
I have exciting news about an official HOLDEN UGANDA RUN in North Carolina coming very soon!!
Notice the girl running sideways? The one with the funky bangs? Oh, and that outfit? ;)
I'll leave you with that!
