I think therefore I am

I have always wanted to be a runner. I'd run here or there but I was never consistent and would shortly give it up. But the thought of being a runner is always tucked into the back of my mind. Waiting.
 For a few months, I've been been reading my friend Jenn's blog, http://runswithpugs.com/, as she chronicles her running journey.  And as I read, I started to be inspired.  To think, maybe I could do it too. And then I stopped thinking about it and then started doing. I dug out old, forgotten workout clothes, laced up my sneakers and got out there. And I love it. Sure, some days are hard. My face is tomato red and dripping with sweat, but the red, sweaty face tells me I've accomplished something.  I've taken time for myself and set obtainable goals.
Sometimes, I have a little company.


  1. Good for you! Running is not for me, but I recently discovered Zumba. Yeah, you get all gross and sweaty, but it's a great stress reliever and it makes you feel good!

  2. Long ago I accepted I'm not a runner, either. Like Style Journey, I love Zumba! I think I'm a bouncy, aerobics type.

    I have a question for you. Will you please email me? gigiofca@gmail. I don't see your email.
