Another post, I know!!

I just keep posting like crazy, but lately I have found so much to write about. So read if you want I guess! ;)
Last night I ran. And can I tell you something...after that half marathon I did last year, I ran only a few times. I didnt lose any weight running (back then) and although I liked it, I didn't really love it.
Until last night.
So yesterday I had to take care of some car stuff and couldn't go to my morning aerobics class. All day I wanted to work out, but things just kept coming up. I was determined to do something and ran into a friend at the store who said a group was going running at night. I decided to meet up with them. Something must have happened at the last minute and no one could come anymore, but I still went.
I ran all through my neighborhood. Maybe it was that I was getting away/out of the house from my naughty kids (and they were especially naughty last night). Maybe it was that I had no music, just the sound of silence where I could collect my thoughts. Maybe it was that this time running I am in shape and can actually RUN.
But I ran. And when I was done, I didn't want to be done. I realized I could keep going, so I did. I did the whole pattern through my neighborhood again. I wasn't ready to be done, but my hubby was sick so I decided to come in and check on him.
But I ran. And it.was.AWESOME! I loved every second of it. I was faster than last time. It was so relaxing and refreshing at the same time. It was just so great. And I came home refreshed and renewed. I can run, I can run! ;)

Running is the best type of cardio. It's just you and the ground. It's also really nice to do something for yourself and have some alone time.

I love running I love running I love running! Maybe that's why I often do it twice a day! I love running I love running I love running. Except for fartleks this morning. Ugh. But I love running! So, how about coming down Jan 27th and doing London's run with me again?
