Change Is Good

Most people are uncomfortable with change. I think its easy to get stuck in a routine or set in your ways. I'm so tired of having a set schedule especially when it comes to training. I get restless. I usually hit Gold's Gym or Beach Road for my morning runs. Beach Road is nice for a run because of the view of the lagoon in the mornings however the fumes from all the cars passing by really bothers me.

For a change early Friday morning EJ and I drove up to Suicide Cliff and ran from the base of the hill all the way up to Suicide's look out. Its a gradual steep incline run and it's a killer on my legs. I'm so glad we did that. I love the north part of the island because its so green and it's away from everything.

When your running, there is nothing out there but you and the road. My thoughts are silenced and I am left with the feeling of numbness. Numbness is good. Sometimes I think i just need time to zone out and forget about . . . I think I have come down with a case of island fever and am longing for my trip to San Francisco. 17 more days till I can breakaway . . .

my problem is that my thoughts are not silenced when I run. If I don't have someone to run with or my trusty ipod I start thinking about how hard it is and how tired I am. Not good.

See you tomorrow night for REAL!

Beve! That's amazing. I don't know if I could run that steep of an incline for that long. Good times!

You're coming home! Are you coming to LL? Hope to see you :) E-mail sometime.

That's how to get that heart up! Running is such a great stress reliever, isn't it?
