I am AWESOME!


Most of the time I feel as though I am just an ordinary girl. There are some days where I do actually feel pretty good about myself. Most of those days are because of running. Well today, I ran 10 miles (my farthest distance so far) and I have to admit I feel way better than "pretty good." Today, I AM AWESOME! And that, my friends, is why I run :)

Thanks Julie!

YES!!! I know exactly what you mean by this. And it is almost always because of a good run. Today I ran 20 minutes without stopping, the longest I have run in 2 years, so I am right there with you on feeling awesome! Just wish we could hold onto that feeling for a few days because we ARE awesome! :)

The "runner's high" is an incredible feeling - way to go on killing the ten miler!!! ♥

Way to go Emily! The day I did C25k w5d3 (the 20-min run) was the day I felt I became a runner! Congrats to you girl!

Thanks Oh_mg (love that btw!)- there's nothing better than the runner's high!

I love reading about the running adventures that various people have but never tried it. I have had problem knees most of my life so I was always afraid running would push them too far. Now, I'm far too old to try such things. Keep up the good work!

Caron, Thank you!! Bad knees I will accept, but you are NEVER too old to do anything!!!
