Running Out of Gas

After 2 full months of (much-needed – :)) rest, I did some running…finally.  Not a lot though.  Just enough to make me realize I am really out of shape.  So it’s time to dig in and get going.    One thing I need to do also is to cut out the fast food and go back to more wholesome diet of fresh foods from home.  Otherwise I’m no different from my car running on empty.

I feel my best when I’m training.  More energy and firing on all cylinders.  I have large and medium LIFE Runner shirts.  Fortunately, haven’t needed the large since that April picture.  Another reason to get back at it.

Picture3My last 5K run was at the end of April…I won first in my age division though.  My teammate Sharonda won 1st in the women’s division…she was 2 months pregnant.  Blessings to her – I just saw her Saturday and she is doing great!

Some of the local LIFE Runners are meeting Saturday for a run by the Capitol.  Lot’s of great fun.

  1. My next run is the Janesville (WI) half-marathon in Sept. It always seems hard coming back to running after a break but sometimes it’s just what the body needs. Good luck!

    • Simone, You are so right. I went out for a run with my group yesterday and really did poorly. I was actually embarrassed about how badly I did. I think I needed that though to kick it up a notch and get back to serious training. So today I headed out. Still didn’t do great but need to get out much earlier which I will tomorrow. Good luck with your race in Janesville. I love running in cooler weather but I’m just thankful I can run.
