Short stories from long runs

This blog about my run and training

You guys, I went for a run.

Full-disclosure, it was .8 miles. But still! I put one foot in front of the other and actually exercised self-control by turning around and running home at the end of the block instead of banging a left and throwing on a few extra miles.

I’ve been feeling antsy for just about every one of the past eight weeks, but have put in miles in the pool and hours upon hours in the yoga studio. It’s been good and, sure, I’m feeling pretty zen, but running is still my first love.

This morning I hit up a free vinyasa class at Lululemon down the street and afterwards, popped into the running shop next door and was fitted for a pair of Nike Zoom Vomero 7s, or, as the runner store guy pointed out, the exact opposite of what you’ve been wearing. Subtle.

I took ’em home and set them on the stairs to bring up to my room tonight, but my-gosh, they were staring at me all afternoon.

So, I promised Nik I would just go to the end of the street and back, wearing my oversized Nantucket sweatshirt as insurance that I wouldn’t get far and off I went. I felt so aware of each step I took, gauging how every single movement felt. The shoes themselves felt a bit like bricks compared to the old pair, but I ran.

Do endorphins activate for a workout that lasts eight minutes?

  4. Hey there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your content
    seem to be running off the screen in Chrome. I’m not sure if this is
    a formatting issue or something to do with web browser
    compatibility but I figured I’d post to let you know.
    The design look great though! Hope you get the problem
    solved soon. Thanks

  15. I am really loving the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility
    issues? A number of my blog readers have complained about my
    blog not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any solutions to help fix this problem?

  16. Its like you read my mind! You seem to know so much about this, like you wrote the
    book in it or something. I think that you can do with a few pics to
    drive the message home a bit, but other than that,
    this is magnificent blog. A fantastic read. I will
    definitely be back.
