I run, therefore I rock!

Today I ran fourteen kilometers again. Last time I ran this distance for the first time, and was plagued by insecurities and doubts. But I made it, and found out that I indeed have nothing to fear but fear itself!

So today I went this distance again, knowing I could do it. And when I conquered mile after mile I couldn't help but feel really proud. Look at me! The girl who couldn't even run around the park during highschool without collapsing in a sweaty, teary heap of misery. Look at me running fourteen kilometers!

I just love running. It's such a surefire way to feel good about yourself.

Good for you; you are so right - running really does build confidence and makes you feel like you have accomplished something great. And you have! 14 km is a long way to go...

I so often wish I could run. I imagine it would be great to get lost in that endorphin rush.

Four precipitous deliveries, though, and I can't run anywhere that doesn't have portapotties every 1/4 mile.

Good for you....you are right, it is a great feeling, especially when we think back to the 'first' runs and how difficult they were!

I find that this accomplished feeling carries over to all aspects of my life too!

Keep going...soon you'll be reporting even longer distances!
