This past month I’ve been bad. Very, very bad. In fact, running has come to a standstill (pun totally intended). I’m thinking it’s because I haven’t really set a goal yet. Or maybe it’s simply because I’m lazy. What do you think? Actually, don’t answer that.
But today I declare myself lazy no more! I went for a run last night. Well it was actually more a trot/jiggle but I had on running shoes so it counts.
So I’m starting to explore half-marathons for real now. Have any of you ever heard of the Slacker Half that takes place in Colorado? It’s all downhill people. It’s totally calling my name.
You’re probably wondering, who is this Julie and why is she so freaking awesome? Well, I’m a freelance copywriter by day and a blogger by night. Although sometimes I blog during the day and do my freelance writing at night. It really just depends.
I used to consider myself a runner (I even ran a half-marathon back in the day), but now I consider myself an overworked, overstressed, wife and mother of two with no time to exercise. That was until last week – when I got laid off. And now, it seems like I have nothing but time to run.
So here’s the deal, I’m going to train for another half. And you’re coming along for the ride. Well, not literally. I can’t afford plane tickets for everyone. I’m out of freaking work people! But what I will do is chronicle my adventures in running. Let’s just hope I don’t embarrass myself too much.
Ok, deep breath. I will get back on the running wagon. I will get back on the running wagon. Say it with me people, because I’m going to need all the encouragement I can get.
P.S. Can someone please tell me why sitting on the couch watching netflix is just way, way, way more enticing than going for a run? Because I said so, that’s why.
