I have never felt compelled to run before in my life. Ever. This is an entirely new feeling. Even when I was "eating healthy" and "exercising 4-5 times a week at the gym" I never felt the need to run. Yesterday though, it was all I could do to hold myself back. When I got to the last segment for running, I was so ecstatic! I had basically said "screw it" and did a very slow exaggerated victory run to the finish.
It took me a good 4 hours to calm down. It was epic.
Of course now, I can barely convince myself out of bed. I honestly didn't end up feeling as bad as I thought I would. But I'm cold, and can't seem to warm up, and that's never been an issue for me before.
I would like tot make this post more involved, but if I'm going to run that 5k in August, I'd better get started!
This picture was taken about an hour after I had finished. I have this welt/pimple thing right underneath my eye. It annoys me, and it itched real bad last night so I kept rubbing it.
