The second time I tried to run was shortly after Miss A was born. I was terrible at pre and post running stretching, and as a result my knees were on fire after the first few weeks. Instead of persevering through, and stretching, I wanted to wait until my knee recovered. Of course, I never went back to running.
This time, I'm on a mission to see this through. I have my running crew established (AKA Seamus and Ria) and the most amazing scenery outside to admire. I found a 5km run in September which takes place in Sandbanks Provincial Park, and my running mate Seamus has been approved. Next year, I hope to run in the 11km Terrior Run (our B&B is a sponsor this year).
Will I do this? Will I actually keep at running and be able to run a 5 km come the fall? I hope so. I'm sick of being a quitter. I will admit that the main reason why I started this time was because Seamus has the most pathetic "run me" stare. I've also decided to make lifestyle changes that require taking time to exercise the machine. If the county had a wall climbing facility that encouraged insane dogs to run at full speed while I climbed, that's be my exercise of choice. Until then, it's me and the Cherry Valley running crew.
