That's what my feet do when I run outdoors. In times past, it was drudgery. A necessity to move forward. To try something new. Last summer I did a 2, a 5, and a 4 mile run (in that order), before losing my big toe nail, and deciding I had done enough damage to my knee for the time being, but that's not how I feel right now...
Right now, I LIKE running (love is a strong word, people) It finally happened on my run the other day- the like part that is. I was in about the 2 mile mark of my 3.5 mile run when like clicked on. Just like a light. Here's how it happened.
Like I said, I was about at the 2 mile mark, when I hit a small downhill stretch. I had this song playing (Thanks to Lacy- I recommend you add it to your workout playlist. It will inspire you to do great things.) when suddenly the air, which was a perfect temperature that day blew a light breeze, and all I could smell were spring flowers. It was perfect. And at that moment, I began liking running. I really felt like this was all God's creation working together... I know that probably sounds cheesy to you, but it was amazing.
So for now, I am training to run the 10K on May 8th. And I like running.
