Forrest Gump wasn't always a runner - that guy used to have braces on his legs. His momma called them "his magic shoes." One day, a miracle happened under some old oak trees in Greenbow, Alabama: Forrest Gump learned to run.
I'm a night runner right now. I can't decide if that's a good thing or not. I've been coming home, eating dinner, doing a few things around the house and then going out to run, walk and jog. Basically, I've been walking to warm up, then I'll start running until I can't run anymore and then I'll walk again. Eventually the "running" turns in to more of a jog. After about 30 minutes to an hour, I'll come inside, shower and crawl into bed.
It's kind of creepy being out there so late at night though. Brian doesn't see an issue with me running in our neighborhood, but I definitely get creeped out when I see someone outside of their house or in a slow moving car. I've flirted with the idea of running in the mornings, but honestly, it's just so damn hard to get out of bed. I've never been a morning person - I can't imagine that now is the time to start. Or is it?
Workout and running people...do you prefer to work out in the morning or night? Is there a reason one is better than the other?
I'm pretty terrified of this half marathon in January. I'm not kidding myself into thinking that I'll be running the whole thing. I'm actually rather sure I won't be running much of it at all. I'm scared of how much and how far 13.1 miles actually is. I'm scared I'll be the last one to cross the finish line (if I cross it at all) and I'm scared that I'll be the fat girl and everyone will be like "um...what's she doing here??" If anyone moos at me I might have to cutabitch. Just sayin'.
I'm thinking about signing up for a 5K that normally happens in October...that way I'll actually have one event under my belt, even if I can't run it completely. We shall see!
RUN, BRITTANY, RUN!!!!
