I Only Run When Chased.

I am not a runner. Let me say that again with feeling, I am definitely not a runner. I have never liked it. I distinctly remember doing the mile run in middle school as a part of Presidential Fitness, and I hated every single moment of it. Let’s be honest though…I was a chunky kid. Bigger kids don’t like to run, we prefer to take our own pace and get there when we get there. After all, we bring the fun. Or to quote that pop icon swathed in glitter, “the party don’t start til we walk in.”

For the last three years, I have made a concerted effort to make myself run. I get about four weeks into training and then stop out. So with a renewed clear heart for exercise, I am planning to run in an 8K in November. I am beginning training today and will hopefully get through the nine weeks of it in order to complete the race.

My question today is, what is one thing you have always wanted to accomplish (within reason) and haven’t? What’s stopping you from starting today?
