It felt so good to go out and run again today!! I haven’t been able to go on a true run in months... I used to get a massive panic attack if I got to far away from my house or my school, and it would eventually cause me to turn around. I remember that would happen at indoor track practice in January- it got so bad and I was so embarrassed that I ended up leaving the team early in the season. I was so scared to go out and run again and have these feelings pop up.
On my run today for the ctcollegiate5k , I still stayed pretty close to my house, but I didn’t feel like I had to turn back at any point. It felt really good. My time wasn’t as fast as I was hoping, but I also Jane the ran in, well, a few months (oops). I feel energized after though, so I’m definitely going to try and get back into the swing of running again!!
These virtual 5k events really help trigger my motivation, let me tell you that! 🏃🏼‍♀️
And look how cute my little Jonathan is!! Go uconn huskies!! 🐶💙

Hey, do this 5K with me, said my friend candacehopewellness a few days ago.
There was a slight pause and then I said - sure!!

I would have never agreed to do a spontaneous virtual 5K a month ago. I have a love/hate relationship with running and 5Ks especially. I don’t enjoy going fast, I don’t like feeling out of breath and I just never felt strong enough, fast enough to do it.

But today I felt confident to just go for it. After just a couple weeks of this new running program I feel stronger and motivated, running almost every day.

Jeff did give me a double look when I walked out of the house with a bib on, but I finished! And my time wasn’t too shabby either. Can’t wait to go faster with the next one.

Cheers to pushing those boundaries and getting out of your comfort zone! Feeling strong is where it’s at!
