WORKOUT – (total) 14.5 miles/2:02 no music, hilly
Streak – day 16
This morning I ran down the hill (4.15 miles/32 mins) from the shoe we live in to meet Katie for a run.
We planned this run while I was still in Texas, then I got my days all mixed up and by a Christmas miracle, I made it on time to our meeting spot. We ran (3.7 miles/37 mins) and then I finished up (6.6 miles/53 mins) for a total of 14.5 miles.
With this run I hit my goal of 2500 miles for the year. Considering I took about 3 months off to commercial fish in Alaska, I’m happy enough with it.
What else I’m happy about? Vanessa Hudgens bringing back denim overalls as a bikini cover up. I’ve been waiting and waiting for this look to be en vogue again.
You know I love running; I wouldn’t run 2500 miles to try to impress a bunch of internet strangers (except you, Amy) if I didn’t. But as I was running this morning I was wondering, Anyone out there not like running? Think it’s boring and just not into it?
Sometimes it seems like everyone in the healthy living blogworld is a runner and even a marathoner which is great; I wish everyone could run 1 marathon in their lifetime because it’s such a fantastic sense of accomplishment.
But it’d be interesting to hear from anyone who’s not into running, who has no desire to ever run a marathon.
My advice is to do the activity/workout that you love (or hate the least). I have zero rhythm and prefer to make a fool of myself online rather in public so Zumba isn’t for me. Likewise, the only time I like to be in a pool is when I’m doing this…
…so swimming isn’t my deal either. Find what you enjoy and do that. You don’t have a marathoner to be fit and healthy… although you do to be my friend.
