Still hanging in there, with running 10 miles a day for 10 days. So far, 7 days and 70 miles. I didn't know I had it in me. My legs do get sore, but they seem to feel the best right after the long run. You would think that would NOT be the case. I hope they are getting stronger and not getting ready to crumble and fall right off my body! I just love running. I love the natural high that it gives me when I am facing stressful situations in my life. It's like being a drug addict without the drugs. Running sends me to a better place while I am running, and the feeling stays with me for many hours afterwards. Am I addicted to endorphins?
I am addicted to Team In Training and the idea that the things I do might bring health and happiness to others. It is really more blessed to give than to receive. I couldn't imagine a life lived only for myself. Today I ran my 10 miles for Stephanie Hill who works up here in Deadhorse. She is doing well after her battle with lymphoma. I hope it is banished from her life forever. Now to just banish it from the world forever. That's my goal!
