When I was in Jr. High I ran cross-country but I wasn't good enough but I was consistent. I even
But the first few months were difficult. I ran an average of 30 mins. a day. Then came knee pain which I have never had in my life. Trying different shoes and I wearing knee braces didn't help. But I continued running. In less than 6 months I lost the pounds and the inches. My weight now is between 165-167 pounds.
Running however, has mutated from an activity to lose weight to something I do because I want to keep my body healthy, but more importantly running is a time to think and pray. They all are intertwined now. I don't compete (even though I have ran 3 marathons), nor have any desire to. I am not good enough. I don't run because I love my body either. Like everything, God has given or entrusted me, I take care of it. Yes, I still say I have to run when I don't feel like it but I know it is more than that. It is part of me. I have no intentions on stopping and joining a cross-fit redemption group or other. I had enough of that before. It would ruin what I have now. Besides it's easy to just put shorts, shirt and shoes and go. I don't need directions, I only need my two feet. Everything else comes on the way!
