Healthy Writers Club: Week One

Thanks to the lovely Shallee (pronounced Sha-lee) McArthur. Each Friday is a celebration of writing and living healthy!

I've never been a runner. Let me tell you, time and again I've tried to be a runner. You'd think having a dad who was a runner (he once ran the Wasatch 100 a 100 mile race, I'm not kidding!) I would have no problem.

I've always wanted to be a runner, not just becasue of my dad but becasue runners have amazing bodies, but I've always gone back to dance instead which is hard to keep up when you aren't taking regular classes.

This time I'm determined. I've decided to look at running in the same way I've come to look at writing. At first I had no clue what I was doing, but I just wrote. Then I started to research writing to become better. Then I found other writers to help me out and cheer me along.

With running I'm on step two of that process. I've decided to follow this running schedule until I can improve enough to run for longer amounts of time. I just completed week one this morning.

This blog post is my first official step into looking for support to keep my running going. I think of much more motivation than being accountable to my blog followers.

Weekly stats: 3/4 days of 30 min runs
Coolest moment: Losing two pounds, wahoo!
Hardest moment: Pushing myself beyond what I think I'm capable of.

Do you believe writing and running go hand and hand? Do tell!
