I’m running a half marathon in two weeks. I’d rather not talk about how my training is going. Let’s just say, I’m now focused on making sure I have a decent outfit because I won’t be setting a personal record.
I’m not where I want to be in my training, but I’ve still enjoyed starting to get back into the routine of running. I recently moved from Tampa to St. Pete. On my first run in my new neighborhood, I stopped. I wasn’t (totally) out of breath or cramping up. I stopped because a pod of dolphins was swimming near the shore.
Even if you’re a serious athlete, I hope you get to take some time to stop and watch the dolphins, or the birds, or whatever wildlife and other neat things are in your neck of the woods.
