I hear muscles have memory. So today I headed out on a different road for my 5-mile run. It was hilly, and the wind was in my face. I had this gorgeous view to keep me going. I run because I have always loved to run. I just haven't done it consistently since I left Colorado in 1997. I had a running partner there, Jeanie, and we'd go out on our lunch break and do 3 miles or so. Year-round. I trained for a half-marathon in 2013. I completed it in 3 hours, 4 minutes. Then I didn't run again for almost a year. It's true that the hardest part of running is taking the first step out the door. So here's to that first step. Every day is a do-over.
