I decided to take the momentum from my previous work out and run outside today. The birds were chirping and the bees were buzzing. Wait.... I think I’m dreaming! Finding it weird that I dreamt about running; I get out of the bed, put on my clothes and went for a run. Still I do [...]

Run #2 Yup I’m Through!

I decided to run two days in a row so I wouldn’t lose any motivation. I’m still getting use to this whole running thing. I definitely don’t have that burning desire to run. But I went through that whole ordeal to get the shoes; I might as well get my money’s worth. I ran 1.74 [...]
