Sometimes I like to pretend I'm athletic.

So I have taken up this thing called running. I love hate it! (But really I love it.. kinda)
I'm pretty sure I look like a duck waddling along. Or possibly like a beached whale trying to move, but it's not working. Either way, i'm sure all the morning commuters get a kick out of watching me "run" in their rearview mirrors every day.

I am far from an athlete. I can barely go a mile without feeling like my legs might fall off. 
But, it has kickstarted me into this awesome new lifestyle!

The cool thing about it though, is I can walk up these things called hills now, without feeling like I am gonna have a small heart attack when I get to the top. Or I can walk a mile, and keep going. I can go out, and enjoy the nice fall weather doing something active!

A year ago going for an "easy" Hike, was out of the question. Halfway up the paved trail I thought I would die.

Give me 6 Miles up-hill, sounds wonderful!
Walk up river, over rocks and waterfalls in a slot canyon? LETS GO!

And I do just that. 

My saturdays are filled with wonderful adventures, and I am so thankful for the kickstart to fun adventures that running has given me.
