As I was on checking out the "who knows what" information covered, I have come to the realization that I have become obsessed with all things running.  I am consumed with reading books, tracking my times, writing this blog, reading the "blogs" of others, reading forums, and incessantly talking about running.  Is my family tired of it?  They haven't said they are, but as my dear husband lie sleeping beside me, I couldn't help but think that maybe they could be in the future.  I certainly don't want anyone to resent the fact that I put so much thought into running.  I am so happy and proud of myself for starting to run.   

 I have made a little pact with myself!  I would only talk about running with people who do run!  I will NOT talk with others about my running unless they ask first.  This will be VERY difficult because
#1 I am not a shy person and I like to talk,
#2 I am so passionate about running that I want to share what I do with others,
and #3 I am trying to decide if I want to do this "half-marathon" and my desisions are made more easily with input from others. 

I know today is a non-run day, so my plan is to scrapbook!  :-) But I am so excited to scrapbook my race pictures and document my progress over the past 10 months of running.  (Seems kind of contradictory)  Don't know if this will happen today for me or not, but as of now that is the plan! 

New product found online  I can't wait to try one of these!  The new Runners World magazine comes out in just a few days!   One last little tidbit. . . . read on one of the Beginner Forums last night what the difference between a runner and a jogger is.  It has nothing to do with your speed.  People who run will call you a runner and people who don't run will call you a jogger.  So I say, I am a runner!  Slow and steady, but I am a runner.  --Steph

  1. Steph,
    You may be obsessed with running but WHY NOT!! You have worked very hard and come along way in the short time you've been running! I love the motivation it has given you and only wish that I still had that much motivation! I'm struggling to continue my running alone! Have no fear, I will do the best I can running (Jan 1st-no excuses again!) and will be ready for the 5K's this summer! Running has given us more time together and I like that! Keep up the great work!
