The Idea of Running

Whenever I'm driving down the street and I notice runners I think "I love the idea of running". I have a couple friends who were coordinating times they could go running together, and again, I thought "I love the idea of running". I don't know what it is, but it seems really cool, it seems like a great form of exercise, you can just pick up and go, you don't need any expensive equipment (except maybe shoes, but that pales in comparison to some things you need for other forms of exercise) you can even tote your kiddows along (if you have a jogging stroller).

I feel like I have given running a fair chance (I think running three times a week for 5 months is a good fair chance) and I still hate it. I never liked it while I was doing it (although, I did really enjoy the company ;) ) and I didn't like the way I felt after I finished running. Even though I know this, I honestly still love the idea of running!

I don't know what it is, there must be something deep inside me that likes to run, but it most certainly isn't my body.

  1. I used to like running...but now I keep telling myself I can't let my blood pressure get too high so I leisurely stroll and sing "Mary Had a Little Lamb" as strangers give me silly looks. Maybe I'll have to learn that dance you're going to teach for aerobics.:)
