So I'm sitting at work on this Sunday morning wishing I were out running. Yes, I said it. I don't wish I were in bed, I wish I were running. This morning is the Brew to Brew 43 mile run. I did it last year and I sure didn't think I enjoyed it at the time. But this morning I'm really wishing I were out there. See I'm really enjoying triathlon training but I will always be a runner at heart. Biking and swimming are hard for me. I do it to prove to myself that I can. I do it to challenge myself to get outside my comfort zone. I do it because I once crashed my bike and I'm a little afraid of it. I don't like being afraid of anything so I get back on even though sometimes I hate it. Swimming and biking take concentration and work. Running is an escape, a release, the time when I find peace and I let go of all my troubles. Everything makes sense after a run. I hope I get to that place with swimming and biking. But right now I'll just wish I was out on the Brew to Brew course.
