This Is Not Running Away

5 Jul

Before i start with this post, it is extremely important for you to know that for my whole life i have never ever RUN.
I mean it literally.
I could walk for hours. I could Skip. I could hit a gym. But i could never run.
And when it comes to morning runs, i am like GARFIELD. I wouldn’t try it.
But then in my present situation it hit me,
“Everything is going stale. I could use something fresh”
And nothing is fresher than a splash of morning air!
So on 2nd July, 2012, i did go for a run (that too at 5am).
And since then i have not missed a day.
Okay. Okay. i know its been only 4 days, but i promise (to myself) its gonna last.

Now that i have started this i would jot down my motivations to run (so that i can turn back and look at it the day i forget these!).
1. A CHANGE: I really needed a change.
2. TO FEEL FIT: I have been growing rounder (thanx to all the chocolates i prescribed myself for depression)
3. DISCIPLINE: An urge to do something at fixed time of the day might push me for some more discipline (which could really come in handy for now).
4. MUSIC: As i run, i plug in the crankiest tunes i have heard. This peps me up in the wee hours giving me the confidence.
(One of my favourites has been STAND BACK by JOAN OSBORNE from RAISING HELEN)
5. I AM STILL BETTER: As i run i see old people coming for walks. Ones that are too weak to walk. Some suffering from arthritis and some from Osteoporosis. I see a crippled young lad pushing himself to walk more than 5 steps in one go. and it tells me “THANK GOD! I AM STILL BETTER.”
