|I am one of those crazies down there. See me?|
When I say that I have a love/hate relationship with running, I mean that in every way. The worst part of running to me is the time between putting my shoes on until about mile 1. The buildup to running SUCKS. I am terrified that I'm not going to make it through. But once I get going, my body remembers "Hey, I like this." And I absolutely LOVE how I feel afterward. I feel accomplished. Healthy. Motivated. I sleep better, eat better, and feel amazing.
After all, running gives you endorphins. Endorphins make you happy. Happy people just don't kill their husbands...... They just don't. <--- Ok, that last part was from Legally Blonde, but everything else is true.
So even though I hate running in the cold right now, Holls and I will lace up our tennies and suck it up for the next 12 weeks. Because running is great. And awful. And awesome. And horrible.
