the R word



my entire life i have always hated running it just has never been my thing, in middle school i went out for track and they put me on long distance running the mile and half mile, ugh wanted to die. high school i decided to do track again mostly to be outside and hang with Nattie but no running i did all three jump events which i really loved, but NO running. until one track meet coach was like whittney i am putting you in the 200 this meet, great, here i am standing up like an idiot while everyone is crouched down in those cool start things that i did not know how to use. and the race started i may have jumped the gun who knows, half way though i am thinking this is not so bad but then it gets bad, a couple yards before the finish line my body starts to get a little ahead of my legs and next thing i know i am flat on my face.
anyways this post is not about me being an idiot in high school but that I AM CONQUERING THE R WORD, yep that is right ryan convinced me to try running a little before my work outs, even though i told him i hate running i hate running i hate running. i caved and i am running and i actually kinda like it this time. don't get me wrong i wont be running a marathon or anything just a one mile or so before i work out. i am proud of my self,
