running.

>> Saturday, April 2, 2011

i am a runner.  well, in the athletic, exercise sort of way, i am trying to be.  however, committment-wise, i realize that i am a runner.  it used to be in relationships - when i was younger, no one seemed to hold my interest more than a few weeks, unless, of course, they made themselves "unavailable" and i had to chase them.  and chasing also meant running, so the theory fits.  choosing a major in university was also an exercise in itself... english? art? design? advertising? usually the choice was made at the last minute.  and even then, i wasn't ever really sure.

now, as an adult, the running theme has manifested itself in different ways - 10 jobs in 12 years, three very short term mortgages (yeah, i know interest rates are lower that way too but i fear the 19% interest rate that my parents had paid when they purchased their house in 1979 and part of me tells me to lock in) but the objects of my affections are definitely more stable and i don't fall in love very often.  (lol) in regards to recreational activities, i'm always trying something new - crochet, knitting (which i am still struggling with and most likely will never master), resin, soap making, mosaics, powerlifting (don't ask) - but quickly moving on.  however, the last time i changed jobs wasn't because i felt the need to run, but because it made things easier on us as a family.  the mini herself has been running since she learned to walk - i can barely keep up anymore but that in itself is tremendous fun because i can't imagine anyone better to be chasing.

however, some things still remain static despite the frequent changes of mind and spirit - i love to run.  i'm aiming to pick up where i left off with the Couch to 5K program last fall.  so i'm going out to find some new running shoes and hit the pavement.

(now if i could only decide what songs to add to my new running playlist... any suggestions?)

You Go Girl!! Hopefully running will provide you with some much needed and deserved "YOU" time. I'm hitting the bike since running injured me, both physically and "EMOTIONALLY" lol
