One step (or 5,550 steps) at a time.

I just ran 2.6 miles – the most I’ve ran since I sprained my ankle at the Shamrock Run last year!

Wow, it really felt awful at the time! The first mile was no big deal, but after that I thought my lungs and heart were going to burst out of my body.

My ankle didn’t hurt while I was running and it doesn’t hurt now, but I’m definitely aware of it. I’ll have to treat it carefully today, focus on an anti-inflammation diet for the next few days, and  hopefully I won’t feel any after-math. I’m thinking the roller-ball will be a good idea for my legs, too!

It was a tiny bit sprinklish outside, but it never actually rained. I checked the temp before I left – 43°F, no problem for my Icebreaker gear. I didn’t even need a jacket. I wore a fleece snood around my neck, but had to take it off around the first mile mark. I felt a little out of practice knowing what gear to wear, but it all worked out.

There is a part of me that would love to run – even if just a little bit – every day.

I’m not sure it’s feasible or not, but the idea of being a person who runs every single day is appealing to me. Do you ever think about that?

“I’d like to be the kind of person who _______________.”

Has a clean house? Never makes inappropriate jokes at work? Runs every day? Has rock-solid abs? Is always on time? Travels for pleasure?

All of the above!

Well, one step at a time. Or in today’s case, approximately 5,550 steps!

In good health,
