Is anyone reading this anymore? Are my running stories getting boring? Well, let me just say this. The actual running? Not so boring.
I have a quad muscle. I am still a bit of a chunker, but I have a large muscle sticking out of my thigh now. That may explain why my pants are a little bit loser around the waist and butt, but not so much the legs.
I ran 3.5 miles today with Lisa. I am really liking the foothills trail in Puyallup. Not only is it beautiful and scenic, but I also run much faster on it as I am deathly afraid of wildlife ( hell, I'm afraid of house cats) and I assume something is in the bushes watching me. Today, in fact, a duck the size of my running shoe ran across the road and I think I peed a little. I'm just saying though, good trail.
So I am in the very beginning of writing an article for a new magazine about this little journey of mine. I am so excited but a little bit stressed. Even though I have no article experience, nor do I have anymore than a year of college under my belt, the nice woman from the magazine wants to "give me a shot". Bless her. I am supposed to be thinking of a good topic for my article and obviously all I know about is self improvement through pain. I am not sure how to translate that into something that might inspire. Any ideas?
