Stupid things that make me feel like I have started to really experience the life of a runner.
Soaking a shirt with sweat
Swallowing a bug while running
Tripping and totally scraping up myself
Blisters on my feet
Sore legs for days
Constantly looking for new hype songs
Doing the runners nose blowing when stuffy
Running through the feeling of needing to throw up
Holding in my pee
Keeping my pace and re-doing my pony tail
Passing people up
Getting a sip of water from random sprinklers
Falling in to a trance watching my shadow
Getting the best ideas (but always forgetting them)
Making my last mile the fastest mile
Getting jealous seeing others running when I can’t
Smiling when my endorphins kick in
Inspiring the people in my life to run
7 months ago I could hardly do a mile and if someone were to tell me I’d be capable of doing Half-Marathons by now, well, I’d never believe it. Definitely amaze myself sometimes.
I’m just another runner but I love every sick/agonizing/gross/painful/beautiful moment of it.
