I find myself so frequently saying, "I need to find balance in my life!"
So, I explored the idea of balance & what I felt would help me find & feel more balanced. Being a former runner, dancer & a current yoga teacher, I decided it was time to CREATE the balance I wanted by finding a way to better incorporate these practices into my life.
Here is where I chronicle my journey to balance.
7.12.11 One of my goals this year is to get back into running & run a half-marathon race. So today I began my training! I have 12 weeks to prepare.
I got my run in during the morning due to high expected temps today.
haven't run in months, so it was a little less than easy
My thoughts as I ran?
"I run. I run. I run. I don't walk. I'm a runner, I run. hot. breathe. make it to the next mailbox, awesome. see? I run! I am a runner! shoe's untied. don't trip. i run, i don't trip. i run..."
~You get the idea~
I've also found some lovely apps through itunes to help keep me on track.
