So what that I only ran a mile. It's the first mile I've ran in over a month. Yep, a whole month. I've fought a low back injury in October that has left me scared to run because once I thought I was better it would act up again, then last week I came down with a sore throat/ear infection and didn't workout at all. But, today was the day. I got back to the gym and it felt good. I'd done 45 minutes on the elliptical, 15 minutes of arms/abs and I knew I had more in me... so I got on the treadmill and let my feet go. It felt good. I can tell I've had some time off... but the point is that I am back. I love the way running makes me feel. Maybe it's because I never thought I could call myself a runner, or I never thought I could do it. Maybe it's just because I love the way I feel when my heart gets to pounding and I know I'm burnin' calories:) Whatever it is, I don't care... I just love it. And I'm going to do it again tomorrow.
