Running... It's what's for dinner.

I have really enjoyed my running lately.  I have seen great gains, and I have really pushed myself!  I have said it several times before, and I will keep saying it, but running has saved my life.  I would still weigh over 330 pounds if it wasn't for running. 

I have done the dieting and gym memberships, and that did help me lose weight, but I could never stick with it.  I would give up.  Something is different about running and running with a group of people.  Sometimes I hate the run but love the feeling I get when I finish.  Sometimes I love the run and get that runner's high when I finish.  Today was one of those days.  I didn't think I was going to enjoy my run this morning, because I ran last night to make up my miles. But it was great today, and I was on top of the world after.

I have run 15 miles so far this week.  I have 5 planned for Saturday and then 8 for Sunday.  That is a good solid 28 mile week!

Life is good.

Chris, this morning I said you were nutty (you agreed!) but you know I admire your dedication!

I think it's safe to say all runners don't like to get up and run so early in the morning (sometimes) but we are always glad when we finish. Nice run, keep it up!!
