So I use running as “me time”. I go through phases in training where I actually run without music. I listen to my breathing and really focus on my cadence. Depending on where I’m running, I sometimes go without headphones for safety reasons.
So when I started running, it was just Jordan and I running around the track. It was nothing glamorous and I definitely felt I was going as slow as a snail. I looked at running clubs in the area and just felt that I would be left behind because I was too slow and wouldn’t be able to keep up.
Another week has come and gone! I’ll be traveling a bit this upcoming week for work and have a concert to go to so I’m excited! It also means I’ll have to squeeze in workouts but I moved things around to make it fit with my training.
So I have been doing my best to get back to reading. Now that I have a smart phone (long story, didn’t have one for forever) I swear I have stopped reading actual books. I usually get sucked into Buzzfeed and then it’s like midnight and time for bed, haha!
Well this summer has sure been toasty. I am a morning runner but I’ve been clocking runs at 80 degrees at 4:30am! Y’all, the sun is not even up at that time. Even if I end up sweaty and gross, I’m thankful for morning runs.
What a fun weekend! I spent most of it trying to get my blog set up and trying to figure all that out. I like what I ended up with and hope to improve it as I continue to grow!
Well, here it is! Taking a deep breath and jumping in. My name is Virjinia and I just LOVE to love on people. I decided to share a bit of my world by creating a blog, but first a little about me.
