Yesterday marked my first run in a very long time. (We're talking years.) I hit Holly Park in Bernal Hill and did just a smidge over a mile. Thanks to a sweet app called RunKeeper, I've got a great way to keep track of my times, distances, and trails. (The math of this keeps me intellectually motivated in a way I hadn't anticipated.)
And you know what? As totally freaked out as I was to start running (I'm a poet, not an athlete, people!), and as much as my lungs felt like a burning pit of doom, I thoroughly enjoyed it. (Yup. Still pretty shocked.) I'm trying a trail in Foster City after work today and hopefully will get a little more distance in this time around.
Here's to getting speedy!
