I have recently picked up a new hobby, in addition to my obsession with moon picture lol. I love to go running! It may be considered more like slow jogging in the running world, but it's new and exciting for me.
I started out this summer with jogging, and would be out of breath within just a few seconds. There is a trail about two miles off campus that I love to walk, and then there is a trail on campus which goes in a loop which I also love to walk. Sometimes when I am a bit more hyper than usual I will pick up my pace on the on campus loop.
But then one day while walking the off campus trail, I got back to the city area, and got into a sticky situation where I had to run out of the way of a car that didn't see me on the sidewalk. When I started running something in me said to keep running, and I did. I ran for quite a while. When I finally stopped I thought, "Man! That felt great!"
That night I decided to run some more around the loop on campus. I ran as fast as I could for as long as I could, and got around about 1/3 of the loop.
Since that day, I've been running about 3 times a week, and love it even more every time. Tonight was a milestone, when I was able to run the entire loop. Not super impressive, but very exciting for me!
All this makes me even more excited about the fact I signed up for April's Color Run.
I cannot wait to be doing this in 1 month....:
