...Athleticism

Well, not really.  The whole exercise phenomenon is pretty foreign to me.  I mean, I've done it.  And, for the most part, I hate it.  But it does feel good afterward.  And I know that it's going to help me reach the end result I'm looking for much sooner.  So why can't I get the hang of it or the motivation to do it regularly (or even somewhat regularly)?

Yesterday a few of my girlfriends and I ran the Hot Chocolate 5k.  I opted not to train for this, and I'm feeling that decision a bit today.  The energy and excitement I felt at the beginning of the run was amazing.  I had planned to walk the 3.1 miles with one of the girls, but when we got separated, I took the opportunity to see what I could really do and pushed myself to run as much as possible.  When I crossed the finish line, I was so proud of myself - it felt so good!

So maybe I'll try to keep up this whole exercise thing.  Hopefully I can remember that feeling I had at the end of the race the next time I choose to just sit on the couch.
