I was Running

I watched Forrest Gump last night, so was feeling a little inspired this morning.

I am here in Chicago, in a hotel right on the River and about 2 blocks from the Lake. It was a beautiful morning; by the time I dragged myself out of bed it was already around 70 degrees and lovely. No humidity. Sun shining, nice breeze off the Lake.

I need to start training for the Nike in October, and frankly I have been a little lazy about this. But, it's time. So I started running.

It felt good. It was the first time in quite a while where I felt like I was really working hard. I didn't go too far, I didn't want to hurt myself (my knee already started hurting a bit), my shoes aren't the best for running (but they're so cute), and, I am not in shape yet. But, at least I did it!
