non-runner nancy

I love this new site that I've found. Since I've been running more seriously, I've also been finding some new running blogs in addition to all the knitty/crafty blogs that I love. Nancy's site is just friendly, motivating and non-threatening. Some of the running sites are soo intense with these uber-fit psycho runners. Nancy's site is for the rest of us - those who love (mostly, usually) running, but have very human struggles. She has created some fun virtual races which are great for me because they give me that sense of comradery since all of my very real running partners have succumbed to injury. As Nancy puts it running is easier with friends. My first virtual race was August 8th and I didn't even know I was doing it. After I completed my long run of 8 miles, I found Nancy's site a realized I had un-officially run along with the 8-8-08 Olympic Spirit run - who knew? Next time I hope I have a heads up and can participate for real - virtually.

Thanks for stopping by my blog and showing support for my goal. I will definitely appreciate any positive vibes you can send my way! I hope you don't consider me one of those "psycho runners." I'm just a regular runner like any other who is pushing himself toward an ambitious goal. I look forward to hearing about your mile. Good luck!

HA HA - no, I'll probably never be an uber-fit psycho runner. Too many other things pulling at me (and I like food too much, I guess!). I struggle to keep the motivation up and keep myself running but I've been pretty regular for a year now. All the wonderful support and even a bit of a sense of responsibility to all the great running bloggers I've met has definitely been a factor. Keep blogging and you'll want to keep running!

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for the sweet post. :D I'm about to go for a run -- I'll take you with me!!
