      I totally feel you. I'm going through a similar stage myself. I spent the whole winter thinking that as soon as the weather got nice, I would be running all the time. I live really close to a park with a great running path. But now I don't feel like running at all! I decided that it's okay, as long as I keep myself active, doing what feels good to me. Play it by ear!

      It takes a lot of guts to admit that your heart is not in something... I went through it last year when I decided to back out of the Ironman. Trust your gut. This is supposed to be fun! (mostly, hehe)

      lisa, that's a great plan. that's kind of what my trainer told me to do. just keep moving. doesn't have to be running if you're not feelin' it.

    the badger got me out the door tonight. and I needed it. also of note: wearing shorts that fit, no matter their size, helps exponentially.

    the first time running in shorts for the season is always a little, um, intimidating.

    in the words of my husband, "you podium'd!". i took 3rd place women. i've never won anything in running before, and this is a 5k PR by nearly a minute. so, so happy.
