I get asked this question all the time and the answer changes all the time... The short answer is to GET THE HECK OUT OF THE HOUSE. Not that I don't love my house and the people inside :) but this is the one thing that I do truly for me and maybe for others too if you consider that I would drive them CRAZY!
But really, and this 'shout out' goes especially to all of the new runners and those thinking about jumping back in. It's a sport for all. Start small and think big! Three things came together in a relatively short time span that propelled me to be the runner I am now:
- 3 kids and my first pair of mom jeans
- making a life list of things I wanted to do before I croak
- 911 which made me realize that I should get started
So it all started with 15 or 20 miles a week 10 years ago and now I'm running around the world. Awesome...
