But I kept trying to be this thing they call a runner.
In college I found myself more than once in the clinic with an asthma attack after pushing myself too hard.
Did I learn my lesson?? Nope…
Post college I tried again. Only this time, I started slower, and on a treadmill. I had a theory I could control my breathing better if I was on the treadmill.
My theory worked. Pretty soon I was up to running a 10 minute mile.
(Stop giggling, it was a HUGE deal for me!!)
I got it in my head that I needed to add a 5k to my bucket list.
But then I had my appendix taken out. And I was out of the workout game for about a month.
Suddenly I was back at square one…
I have tried several times throughout the years to get back on the running train. But each time I develop a stronger hate for the sport.
And yet, my bucket list and my 5k taunt me something fierce. MEAN mean bucket list.
Today I am taking the 5k off the bucket list.
I am NOT a runner.
In fact I LOATHE running.
And you know what? I am okay with it. Running is not for everyone.
New bucket list item?
To ride in a 20 mile bike race!!
I got onto a bike for the first time in years today, and LOVED it. LOVED it!!
Only one problem… I don’t actually own a bike yet!!
UPDATE: I just rode my first 40 miler race.
