Blog and Brag

Once upon a time there was a clumsy teenager that was the last to be chosen for teams in gym class. This girl tried in vain to play a variety of sports but usually ended up spending more time warming the bench rather then kicking/hitting/shooting the game winning goal. A few years later this decidedly unathletic girl went for a jog outside and lo and behold she found a good fit. She just kept running and running.

That's right my sporty friends, running is my game and I am good at it. I am currently training for my first half-marathon and I hit my double digit milestone today. I ran for 10 1/2 stinking miles (15.75 km)!

Sometimes I wish that I could go back in time and reassure my 13 year old self that in 'real life' no one gives a crap if you can hit a softball. But it sure does feel good to know that I can physically push myself further than I thought possible. OK, that's all, no more boring you with my late-night brag fest.
