When I grow up, I want to be a runner!

Week 3, Run 2: 4.28 miles in 37 min, n/incl CD

After my 5.4 miles on Sunday, I had planned on resting Monday and running Tuesday.. but you know, shit happens. And it did. So I rested both days, which resulted in me feeling incredibly lazy by the time night time rolled around, so I was pretty eager for a run this morning.

I had a pretty decent 4 mi. treadmill run. It's funny, because I think I'm beginning to feel like a runner. I'm not there yet. My sister EmLit is a runner, and both of my sisters are so inspiring to me. Someday, though, I would like to think of myself as a "runner", the way I now think of myself as a "musician" (that one was a long time coming!).

I also weighed myself today and found that I am almost 2 lbs. heavier than the weight I had gotten to earlier this summer through dieting, but I think I'm more toned, so I'm not going to worry about it. As they say, "Eat to run, don't run to eat!" I'm running because I love the way it makes me feel, I love the energy it gives me, and because I want to have a healthy anchor for the rest of my life.

Great job on the 5.4 miles! You can be at half marathon status sooner than you think. :-)
