What do you do when life hands you lemons... well if you are me... you run!!! I found out about a year ago that running was a great way for me to deal with stress of all kinds... be it work related, emotional, personal, etc. and also a great way to get an all body work out. I personally am an outdoor runner only... and while I know this is bad for my knees, I wouldn't trade the connection I feel with nature for any treadmill! The thing is, if you know me, you know I've always hated running... one of my best friend's was even surprised when I declared I was running the nyc half last year claiming he never thought of me as the athletic type... thanks... I think? But I did it and what's more, I fell in love/hate with the damn sport!
So now here I am a year later... in a foreign country, far away from family, friends, and most comforts (I still love you hubby!)... finding it hard to cope with the gloomy cold weather and even harder to find a job... so again, I am turning to running. With the encouragement of hub's and my friend Elan... I am happy to announce that I am now officially signed up for london's half this september!!! I will beat london yet and run circles around it so watch out!
