finding my way

by Ali on January 28, 2015

I’ve tried to train on my own.  For a while I actually believed I would do it. Mostly while sitting on the sofa, drinking a glass of wine on a Sunday night planning my week.  To my credit, I was very consistent with the sofa, wine and planning.  The running however was minimal.  The winter arrived and minimal was downgraded to none existent.

I joined a 5/10k running group last week.  Turns out paying to run has brought back my motivation.

On Monday night we had a 5k route.  There was a group of 6 of us, all faster than me. I am overjoyed to run without stopping even if it is ridiculously slow.  We headed out.  They soon pulled away.  About 2.5k into the run I notice up ahead some runners heading south through the intersection.  Less than a minute later another group headed through the same intersection heading north.  I thought how great it was to see so many runner out on this frigid cold and dark night.  I crossed the intersection when I heard some runners behind me.  It was my group.  My faster than me group. Turns out they were the same runners that I had seen heading south, then north and now east.   They were lost 🙂



… steady on

It’s been so long, my computer stopped remembering my account dets.  I [am] probably not even [using] the same computer!

I may actually attempt to make regular posts over the next few months. 

May.  That’s insurance when I look back in 3 years time and laugh at this random post.

I’m heading to Peru for a Race2Adventure.  Which means I have to run.  Preferably have run before getting to Peru.  And since I can’t afford to take you all with me, I will drag you (the one person who either still checks this page, or stumbled upon it accidentally) on my training (typing that made me laugh) journey … cue Steve Perry.
