Running

Prompt: December 15 – Try. What do you want to try next year? Is there something you wanted to try in 2010?

jogging running raceI wanted to run.

I wanted to love it, like so many people do, because in fact, I really really don’t like it at all.

I wanted to start small, a local 10 km race, and get to that point where I feel my heart pumping, energy rising and all things delighted in having that feeling of pushing my body hard to do something it couldn’t do just months before. I wanted to sweat, breathe hard, and feel my body getting healthier, my lungs larger, my legs stronger.

It didn’t happen in 2010. Or in 2009.

Hopefully it will happen in 2011.
