running {outside}...

so here's the honest truth...working out is like the hardest thing ever for me to do. i can't make myself enjoy it. i don't know what my problem is but i can't. the part that drives me crazy is jogging for what seems like forever on a darn treadmill.

so naturally, i blamed my shoes. so what did trev get me for my birthday? probably the best gift ever and most motivating, a gift card for
new running shoes!

so now you may ask, how are these shoes ever going to be put to good use? well i figured out my main problem. the problem is i need to run places where i want to run...which means yes, i need to run outdoors where i can observe real things, not pace myself on a machine that i'd rather throw out the gigantic reflective window staring me back in the face as i do my pathetic runs...

my plan to run outside? 5K every weekend through October...can it be done? i am very confident and my first one is this saturday and i'm pretty freakin excited about it. so if you're one who hates to run, try running's already changing my perspective on the sport and i love it!

a special thank you to trevor, i truly would not have done this without you...i love you!
