dreaming that I was somewhere else. I think it would be pretty great to be laying on a beach chair along the water there... what do you think?
Anyways, those dreams led to me dreaming about other things such as running. First, I am so excited that warm weather will be here soon because I miss running comfortably outside. Also, our new apartment is less than 4 miles from a bike path right along the water. YES PLEASE. I have to go over one bridge to get there but if it's open to pedestrian traffic, perhaps I can run to the bike path when my runs get longer again!
Daydreaming like that got me thinking about my running dreams. I use the term loosely as I'm not a great runner, meaning I'm not that fast. I do love it though. I had wanted to do a marathon this year but it's definitely not going to be this spring as I just am not willing to commit enough of the free time that I do have to running. We'll see how things look for the fall. That being said, I have been better about committing my free time to running. Even on a night where Jess was home last week I chose to go run, and you know what? It made me feel a lot better. She hasn't been pressuring me to come home rather than running, it's just something that I felt guilty about. I've decided that I need to get over it because I am a much nicer lady when I run. Just ask Jess. :)
So here are my goals:
- Run a marathon!
- Run Boston (obviously I will be a charity runner, which is just fine by me!) P.S. I will be there again this year cheering people on... I'd love to meet up with some fellow bloggers to say hey and give you high fives!
- Run an ultra... I just think this sounds awesome, maybe it means I'm crazy but SOMEDAY it would be really cool
- Never stop running... I feel that in the past few years I have been happier than I have ever been in my life (hmm, it also coincides with being married to Jess) and I know running has been a huge part of it. I love how it makes me feel so I hope that I never truly get tired of it. I struggle with motivation sometimes, and sometimes it truly lingers, but I keep coming back for more. And I hope I always do.
What are your dreams?
