My body is begging for it!
January 24, 2010
At first I didn't recognize the feeling. I'm used to my body whining and complaining, and moaning: 'I wanna lie down!'
'I'm feeling really antsy today,' I told my husband. 'Probably had to much coffee,' I decided.
Somewhere in the past nine years something has changed. Is it possible my body has become used to regular runs, and is now actually asking for it?
Suddenly I don't need to threaten myself anymore with scary diseases, or bribe myself with promises of candy bars, I happily run out the door.
'Do what comes naturally,' I mumble to myself as I surrender to the desire to move. And I ask my body: 'Are you happy now?'
By way of answer my body skips merrily, and I feel the antsy feeling disappearing with every step.
Of all surprises running has brought me, this must be the biggest.
I've actually grown to love it.
