Oooooh! Guess what?! I just realised... it's day 265... which means... in 100 days I'll have been doing this for a full year!
Wonder if I'll make 365?! Mind you, I didn't think I'd make day 6 let alone 265... so who can say? A few more runs like this evening I can completely handle though. Out with a few others for a pootle along the river... and no Friday evening soaking either!!
First part run with everyone... second part running for a bit with another of our lovely Notts runners... last bit a leg stretch on my own. A run of three lovely parts. That's not bad going, is it? And then a 'putting the world to rights' chat to round it all off. Whilst wearing our beetroot sweaty faces with pride.
I ran for so long on my own that I thought I was running on my own because I wanted to. Because I needed the space. And then I was too frightened to run with other people because I wasn't a 'proper' runner. And the first few times I did it, I was terrified! And now, I feel like I'm lucky to have choice. To run with others. To run on my own. To feel comfortable with either. And I love how quickly the time passes when I run with others. And I'm chatting. And it's just nice an' relaxed. Even with the obligatory red face afterwards. It's a whole different take on running.
I am a lucky bunny, aren't I?
100 day countdown begins?! Whaddya reckon? Have I got a full year in my legs? Let's see... :o)
