From Treadmill to Track to Trails

I was up at 4:45 this morning.

Black Girls Run! Are in my area and we had a scheduled run this morning at 5:30 at Mt. Trashmore. The run went so well that we’re going to get together every Wednesday for this sunrise run.


Ever since I started running I ran alone and I really appreciate being able to run with other people. No pressure, just motivation. I was scared that I would be left in the dust of all these seasoned runners. Turns out, some have only been running for as long as I have. They are all talking about running half marathons – and I’m totally not on that level but who knows? Apparently, there is a half-marathon in Puerto Rico in November that they are interested in. I’d love to go to Puerto Rico. Running a half marathon? I’ll get back to you on that one.

I find it amazing the progress that I’m making. From casual running on a treadmill to running around the track to running real trails. For me, it’s a metaphor for life. One step leads to another and before you know it, you’re farther than you ever imagined you would be.

Good for you!

I can't do that running thang. LOL. Just give me a stair climber and I'm good. I admire anyone who can run for miles, which I could if I had to, but I'm a wuss.

Hats off to you! Do it!
