Increased distance

Today as I rolled out of bed and eventually woke up, I laced up my running shoes and headed to my favorite place – Snap Fitness.

My goal, yes not my New Year’s resolution, but my goal for 2014 is to increase those running miles. Day one, huge success. I ran an extra mile and a half today and it felt wonderful. I am determined to strengthen my legs, so they can carry me throughout that cardio workout, which I love so much.

I never thought running would be something that turned into a passion. I remember hating P.E. classes in high school when the teacher made us run around the track. Yep, I was one of those students that took advantage of walking every curve and running the straight aways. I’m so glad that all changed, there is something magical that happens when I take that first stride. It’s therapeutic to run.

Now that my exercise is completed for the day, I can start catching up on some writing, since I graciously gave myself a few days off.

Today definitely kicked off a great start to 2014!
