A year ago I ran a marathon. Yesterday I ran one mile, and it was hard.
Like most parts of life, running goes in waves. At times I’m incredibly disciplined, at times I struggle with motivation. Some days I feel amazing, other days I feel awful. But I keep at it because running keeps me happier, saner, and healthier in every sense of the word.
The past year has brought countless changes — a new city, new job, new friends. With so many new developments, running didn’t remain a high priority, and I’ve missed it in my life.
This blog is a work in progress, meant to document my baby steps. I’m working my way back to a half marathon, but more importantly I’m working my way back to structure, wellness, and a healthy, happy life.
Once a runner, always a runner. It doesn’t matter how far or how fast. All you need to do is run.
