I have done 3 sprint triathalons in my life. It was on my life list as something to complete, I always loved swimming and biking and I did the running becuase that was part of it, but I never loved the running. Honestly I barely did the running, I did mostly walking and a bit of running. But over the years I've started running and running more. I've gone through 3 pairs of running shoes with the running.
I usually run once a week with Tammy, sometimes twice, but usually just once. Usually about 4-5 km each time. But there have been times in the last while when I think to myself "By god I am a runner". A couple of weeks ago I woke up on a Saturday and it was starting to snow. A couple of years ago i would have thought "oh good it's snowing I don't have to run', but when I woke up that morning I thought "oh crap I better get running, so I can get my run in'. And then on Saturday I ran a run I had signed up for and I went and ran 8 km. That is the longest I have ever run! Plus it was snowing and -15 degrees, and although I complained about it all day, the run was really fun. I dressed properly and had great company.
Who would have guessed.... I'm a runner.
