My Running Chronicles

I can’t believe it has been two weeks since my last running. Don’t get me wrong I use to hate running, now I enjoy running outside. The reason for the lack of running was because of our move, and simply being busy editing and fixing my first poetry book “Summer Bliss.” Continue reading “My Running Chronicles”

I am all about transforming my body into something better. Looking back at my past  four birthdays since the age of 25 my body has transform for the better. I’m not going to say  journey has been easy, but deciding to get healthy and get fit has been a right choice for me. I am not talking about getting skinny because being skinny does not mean being healthy. I am talking about eating right, working out and making lifestyle changes that will only enhance your journey.

Let’s Run

Let’s get up and move! I was never a person, who loved to run, or jog. The idea of running didn’t spark an interest in me. I would hear people say, “I run to relief stress, or I just love to run.” That was never on my radar. When I decided to become a healthy and change my lifestyle a year ago, I wanted to conquer my dislike for running. It started slowly; I could not even run for a minute without gasping for air. It took from March 2013 until September 2013 for me to run a complete 20 minutes without stopping. It was only possible because my friend/trainer started working with me in June and pushing me to increase my time to run. He pushed me to my limit, and the journey was painful. Do I still love running “NO”, but can I do it for more then 30 minutes yes. I am challenging myself to compete in my first 5k this May. Since running to me is still boring without music I figure let me find a fun race to kick it off. This week on my Facebook newsfeeds the “The Color Run” popped up and I decided this would be my first 5k. I’m still nervous but I am ready. If I plan on running a half-marathon I need to start with running 3.1 miles first before I can tackle 13.1 miles. I am going to push myself, and I am going to have fun along the way. If you’re ready to change your life and tackle some of your fears in running start with a fun 5k.

What I like about “The Color Run” it makes you assemble a team of four to take part in this fun affair. I can’t wait to assemble my team of friends/family down here in South Florida.
