I used to run regularly. Now I don't. I've only gone running a dozen times this year. Last time I ran was July 31st.
There are lots of reasons why I want to start running again -- I want to have more energy and more stamina, feel a sense of accomplishment, and feel stronger and more positive. I want to be able to fit into some of my favourite clothes again. I want to feel more confident and better able to focus. But the main reason I want to get out running again is to boost my writing. When I run, I write. So because I want to be writing, I have to get out running.
I thought if I started sharing my getting back into running experience, warts and all, I'd be more likely to actually get out and run.
