Don't tell anyone...

I am really enjoying this whole running adventure.  So much so, that I actually thought about doing this after the mini is over.  This might actually become part of my life.  Hard to believe, especially if you've ever seen me in my office when I make it a point to let everyone know that runners are pretty much out of their minds (in a good way of course).  I've experienced just the tiniest of left hip pain after my 3 mile run yesterday.  But, I did a simple movement pattern and the pain was gone within a few hours.  I even went to a 45 min pilates class last night and felt even better.  Did I mention I ran 3 miles yesterday?  That is the farthest I have ever ran in my entire life.  I've always played sports and been pretty active, but never a runner.  I like this.  I like the feeling of an open road in front of me, with my destination getting closer with each stride.  I always thought I'd buy a Harley one day so I could experience that "open road" feeling that my dad always talked about.  Well, I think I found it and I understand.  There is just something so peaceful and almost spiritual about seeing the open road with no one around you.  It's just you and the pavement under your feet.  Who knows, maybe one day I will buy that Harley.  But for now, I like the idea of letting my feet take me where I never thought I could go.
