Run Forest Run

So it's been quite sometime since I strapped on my running shoes and really put the pedal to medal and did a little running. I don't have and grand ideas of being a marathon runner it's much simpler than that ... 3 miles that's all I ask. If I was being honest with myself it's been about 16 months since I felt the endorphin rush of a 3 mile run. I still work out I just keep making excuses why I can't run. I admit it's really all in my head my back is fine I know how to handle it and it's not a with a box of Thin Mints and a bottle of Vicoden. I have been at the gym I just haven't really pushed myself. I miss the satisfaction I got from running 3 miles it's a feeling that cannot be replicated on the elliptical no matter how hard I push. So last week I downloaded 9 weeks of running pod casts on to my ipod and I have a plan. Tomorrow is my final day of week 1 and it feels pretty darn good.

I thought it would be cool to translate all this into a little journal of some type. So yup I've added this project to my Creative Bucket List. I kind of have an idea all mapped out in my head using the calendar paper from Spotted Owl Soup and File Folder from Jillibean Soup ...


So it looks like after I finish up my first week of running tomorrow I have a little project to complete.

Happy Crafting
