Today, I start running.
This is what I told a very petrified myself before I started: "I promise, I'll put one foot in front of the other, no matter how heavy my legs get. I may - scratch that - I WILL start slow, but I WILL finish. I will own this run. I will own the destiny of my direction".
I was shocked I slow-jogged the entire first mile without walking. And then the second. One food in front of the other, baby! After 3 miles, I was overjoyed with my 10.20 min/ mile pace. More shocked, but definitely overjoyed. "Beginners luck", I thought.. I don't care, I'm celebrating. And thanking my body. My faith in my legs is restored. My faith in my mind is restored. Because like anything in life, it's about believing you can do it, no matter how arduous the task may seem. "I can do this", I think to myself. "I most definitely can"..
March has been kind to me. I feel like I'm back in the game. My running logs for this month below.
