Well, I really used to enjoy running. I gave it up as I felt like it took too much time away from my family and felt guilty about that. I ran a couple marathons and a half marathon years ago, but my daughter was small and the training was time consuming on the weekends and I felt so guilty and angry that I had to run. Being an all or nothing person...it never occured to me that I could just run for the enjoyment of it with no time constraint or distance in mind. Decided to get a pair of running shoes this week and get back at it. Will be slow and steady for sure, but will also be peaceful and nurturing to my spirit. In all honesty, the older I have gotten the more of a worrier I have become. I started to worry that I was too old to run - what if I had a heart attack, etc. Crazy eh! Going to look for a wickedly cool pair of shoes. Will upload picture.
