Moment…A reflection on 2010

#Reverb10 December 3

Where I ran that day

“Life is not the amount of breaths you take, it's the moments that take your breath away. “

What is a moment that made you feel the most alive this year? For me one of those moments was the day I started running in October. That little voice had been whispering to me again saying...” You could be a runner!”. I have always been in love with the idea of running, but had just decided that was something I wasn’t good at so I could never be a runner. I had recently decided to sign up for the JDRF Walk for a Cure in our area. I figured if I could do 3 miles at the gym on a machine surely I could at least walk a 5k.  Around this time I also had discovered pod cast and been listening to Two Fit Chicks and a Microphone. One episode was about running and again that little voice started in saying “what if you could run a 5k”. Now this statement kinda scared me a little…but what if I could! They had talked about a training schedule that is offered on there website to work up to running a 5k in 8 weeks. I just had to check it out. It looked do-able so I decided maybe I can do this.

After my run

The first morning I started out it was a cool morning but off I went anyways. I couldn’t believe how alive it made me feel. No, it wasn’t easy but it still felt wonderful. That feeling lasted all day, I had energy all day. I couldn’t believe it and I thought now this feeling I could get addicted to.

Much later that day, Still feeling awesome!

Peace, Love and Happy Blogging
