It was definitely time for a little less conversation and a little more action so, this morning, I let the fire in my belly reach my toes and got on the road!
It was wonderful. Snow started falling just as I set out and I got a bit emotional as the music swelled in my ears while I found myself actually running! I took my dog for company and she loved it too.
I was surprised at how easy I found the first couple of runs but must have put a little too much into them as, by the fifth one, my legs felt really heavy and I thought there was a slim chance I might die, but I'm a stubborn old bird so I pressed on.
Thank you so much for spurring me on to make the leap. I really feel proud of myself and am looking forward to feeling my body adapt to this more athletic way of life!
