I am a runner. I can say that with gusto now.
Back in high school, I use to run, but I stopped because it felt like my lungs were bursting.
How times have changed.
Running has changed my life in a good way. It clears my head. And when they say it’s cheaper than therapy, it really is. It does make me feel better. Sure there are days when I really am not in the mood to run, but then I go and run, and it always makes me feel better.
You know when you’re a runner: when you start looking at your statistics. Like how fast you are going, your pace per lap, your distance, your elevation, your heart rate, and so on.
You know you’re a runner: when you run rain hail or shine.
People look at me while I run in the ran. I’m sure they think I’m crazy. Yes, crazy, because I love it. Skin is waterproof.
I look forward to my running days, and I hate it when a meeting/appointment/commitment, etc interfere’s with my running days. I don’t like that.
So far this year I have entered into 4 fun runs.
Results for Run for Russ are in.
It was a surprise to discover I was the 6th female and 27th overall runner for the 10km.
This would explain the massive personal best time for 10k at 50:41.
That calls me a runner, and I will continue to run.
