Running Update: Who Have I Become?!

I know I haven't been the most prolific blogger lately, and I'm sure I haven't talked about running in months.  So it's time for an update.

I'm still running.  And I like it.  A lot.

I ran all winter, increasing my distance per run and distance per month.  I'm getting stronger and faster.  I feel fantastic and I even get a bit cagey when I don't get a chance to run for a few days.  I almost *need* to go--I call it running away from home (So far, I always come back).  I ran in the cold and the snow and the bleh, but I still don't run in the rain (I hate cold and rainy, it chills me to the bones and I just don't do it).

I even signed up to run the Sporting Life 10km run May 1.  My first race with a number and a chip to time me and the chance to completely make an ass of myself amongst a crowd of 15,000 other runners.  I'm terrified and excited all at the same time.

Though really, I know I'll be fine.  When I started running way back whenever, I couldn't even run for 2 minutes straight.  Then I was up to 5km.  Now I can run 10km in under an hour consistently and am running between 25 and 30km a week.  

Who have I become?!

I dunno, but I rather like her.

I'll let you know how the race goes. 



Run Steph, run! I hope you have a great race! (and great means: you run the way you wanted to run and at the end of it, you feel like you ran a race, not that it ran you!)

Good luck on the race! And how do you run in snow without slipping and falling?

I ran this to celebrate turning 55. If I can do it, you can do it!

What wonderful progress you've made! A 10K in under an hour is a great time. Someday I want to be like you.

That's really impressive! Thanks for the motivation! Getting healthy and feeling good is addictive, and get's easier the more you do it.
