Hmmm. I’ve always hated to run. It hurts my chest. I exercise regularly. I can swim the length of a pool (slowly), and can lift a good amount of weight. I walk every day and love to bike. But I hate to run. I find now that I’m sober, I’ve been reborn and just want to try everything again. I pass all of the runners on my way to work. I read about many of the “running sober” blogs out there. So, yesterday I downloaded one of the “couch to 5K” apps and decided to try running. 6:15 am this morning I said goodbye to my confused husband and sleepy dog and did day one. It hurt – just like I thought it would. But it also felt good to complete something I set my mind to try. I’m going to do it again in the morning and I’ll let you know if it still hurts.
