Time to wake up!

Pennsylvania third winter is just about over which means it is time to lace up the running shoes again!  I have a really hard time running in the winter.  The biting cold physically hurts my lungs and makes running a chore instead of the cathartic therapy it has become for me.

If you knew me 2+ years ago, you wouldn’t have caught me running if my life depended on it.  I have never really cared about exercise but watching some of my closest friends complete a 5K, and seeing their pride in that accomplishment, pushed me to want to try.

The first few runs were AWFUL. But I had to keep pushing.  Soon, it became calming.  The rhythmic breathing. Music pumping in my ears.  My heartbeat.  I am  so excited to get back out there and maybe, someday, I will find something for the winter that I love as much as running!

Honestly, I never thought I would complete a 5K but I did – a few times now!  Step outside of your comfort zone and try something you never thought you would.  Find something that is for you and only you!
