ready to run...

there is just something about the olympics that always gets me looking into myself and thinking, "when did i get out of shape?" it's ridiculous really. i mean, not very many of you knew me in high school, but i was in such great shape! i wasn't a stick by any means...but look at my athletic history, gymnastics from age 2-14, then cheering for a while, running sprints from age 10-13 and then i got hips and had to run distance in high school. :)

anyway, i digress. basically, i didn't want to say anything on here until i was doing it CONSISTENLY, but i've started running again! it really didn't have a whole lot to do with the olympics, but that's definately helped inspire me. i actually started up again because i've wanted to start doing road races again and my mom told me one of her friends wants me to help her set up a run for the chamber of commerce in goddard. so i figured if i was going to help her set it up and run it, that i had better run in it! it would be quite rude of me if i didn't.

so, wish me luck! i have a funny story to tell about my run tonight, but i'll save that for tomorrow...

and i forgot to mention that the awesome picture at the beginning of my post is actually my high school stadium. it wasn't finished until my junior year of high school, but it's AMAZING to run on. you've never heard the cheer of a crowd until you've ran in a bowl.

  1. Good luck! I'm sure you have the willpower to stick with it. And that's an awesome pick! That stadium was so cool for us to finish out high school in.
