January 1st 2010 Running Blog

" As every runner knows, running is more than just putting one foot in front of the other; it is about our lifestyle and who we are." - Joan Benoit, Olympic Merathon Gold Runner -

Our family set up a fun run, just some family and friends starting the year off right by following through what they did the night before ~ New Year's Eve Fitness Goals!

My # 1 goal is to be always be faithful, never quit, its also my #1 fear.
#2 goal is to be able to run 5 miles without stopping, maintaining that not just once or twice.
#3 goal is to at least one time by the end of 2010 be able to run my neighborhood which is 4
miles of steep hills!!

Those are my running goals which is one reason why I'm writing this blog and logging my progress. However, it is so much more than running, its a life changing experience and I'm going to write about that part of this journey as well, "My Change Through Running!" Here we go!

January 1, 2009~
Boling Park
3.5 miles
Walked .5
Ran 1
Walked/Ran 1
Ran 1

The main change today was that my family & friends came to Boling Park and we did it together. Doing something together really encouraged me and strengthened my run. There was a sence of unity and one thing I know about unity is it is powerful. I will keep that with me from now on as I run, even if I'm alone, somewhere there is someone doing what I'm doing and in a undefinded way we are unified.
