I've never been a runner. In my youth (ah, youth) I played soccer, where I was forced to run but didn't like it. Once I quit, I was pretty sure those days were over forever.
Today I spent about $100 on sports bras and shorts, and last week I bought a pair of running shoes.
I'm not even positive about the how. I had a bad couple weeks, and decided that part of getting over it was some exercise, and after a week or so of laborious runs around my neighborhood, I'm buying new clothes and trying to convince my sisters to go on a Color Run with me in July or October.
(HOW FUN DOES THIS LOOK?!?!)
I've also checked out a book (part of my librarian-ness is my complete addiction to reference materials. All the websites in the world can't make me feel as secure as a reference book on the topic.) which I am enjoying so far.
I promise this blog won't be just about running, but this is the big thing in my world right now. And I like talking about it! (Sorry.)
