Hahaha. . . that's me. Will run for Pizza!!!
I am so excited to be training for a half marathon again! I am not entirely sure why though. By nature I am not a person that loves running. However, I do recognize all the benefits and always feel so good after a run. I'm not going to lie, it takes a lot to get me out the door and after yesterday's painful 3 mile run I decided to write down the Top 5 reasons why I am glad to be in training again.

1 – I cannot give excuses for why I cannot run today. I have to run 3 times a week because I am training for a race! ;)

2 – Running is my anti-anxiety/depression drug. Seriously, it puts me in a happier state of mind.

3 – It hurts so good. Lol! Okay, with as long as I have been running, 3 miles should not hurt this much. I guess you cannot take 4 months off and expect to be right back where you were.

4 – If friends run with me it gives me time to catch up with them. Life is so busy and it is often hard to find time for coffee, but I am running three times a week so if you run with me we’ll have at least a half an hour to chat. . . . because I am really good at running and  chatting at the same time.

5 – The fresh air does a body good. . . oh, except when it is below 40 degrees outside. Then I’m sure it is doing some sort of damage. Running outside, breathing the fresh air, because I live in Central Oregon it is fresh air, has got to be like going to an oxygen bar. It renews you.

I am only 12 weeks away from the Half Marathon. . . YIKES!
