Why Do I Want to Run Again? June 2011

One thing that will make this return easier is that I have gone into semi-retirement and have taken the summer off to do a lot of things, but one of the main things I will be doing is running.  Hopefully, the knee holds up and that I don’t get impatient by do some stupid training routines.  I am not known for my patience and am a bit bull-headed (stoopid) at times by trying to do too much too soon. Hopefully, I have learned some patience as I have matured. We will see on this one.

I have decided to do my daily running log and most of my posts related to running at my new blog “Time to Run Again” (update – which I discontinued and now use A Veteran Runnah).  So if you are interested in my daily battle to get back in shape and the story of my return to running after a sixteen month layoff due to injury, please follow me there.

So why do I want to run again?

The answer is that I am a runner and have been one for a long time.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Now to do the work, get out there and put one foot in front of the other and run.  It feels good to be back to being a runner – it is a part of who I am, that was missing for far too long.
