Charlotte Racefest 2007

I have a love/ hate relationship with running. I love to do it and how you feel so acomplished after BUT I hate how it makes my body physique so muscular. I have activley been running for 7 years. My Dad has been a big influence on this since he has been running since I was alive. I remember as a kid riding my bike as my Dad ran next to me. He amazes me how early he will get up to do this and not to mention he puts in more weekly miles than I ever have. He loves to run in new areas - like if he is visiting somewhere, he uses running as a device to explore. I am way more technical at it. I use to track my runs. I like to know how far and my split. So far I have done 2 half marathons and my Dad has done 3 (I was getting engaged the weekend of this 3rd one). Out of the two we have done together, he won the first and I beat him on the second. We have talked about running a full marathon. Its a nice thought but if I am going to do a marathon it has to be completed under 4 hours - I would stive for 3 hrs and 45 min. I refuse to run this if I know I really can't do it and complete it in 5 hours - I may as well walk it. Do it right or don't do it at all. The other problem is that these distance runs make my legs super thick and I hate that. So we will see what the future holds. For now, I have been enjoying shorter runs with my husband. :)
