This may seem like a ridiculous thing to get excited about, but it *seriously* has been since… maybe high school? early high school? middle school?… since I ran outside. I’ve always been a little too self-conscious, a little less-than-motivated, and just not that interested in running.
But today, I was past all of that… and it felt great! It was nice, the combination of the fresh air, some music, nice scenery… and getting a workout in, might I add! It’s a great stress reliever, too! I’m just very excited about starting on this next chapter, wherever it may lead. I’m motivated, I’m feeling good. It was a little over 2 miles today, which is something. Generally, I’ve been running on my treadmill but today I thought, hey, there’s a park nearby with a trail, let’s do this. So, definitely feeling accomplished!
