I don't have any idea how it happens, it just does, and its happened to me....AGAIN! At some unknown time in the last few months I was bitten by the running bug. I've always been an avid runner, sometimes more committed that others, sometimes just social, sometimes very goal oriented. I have a feeling this bite is quite serious. With this under my belt as recent as 2006 and this not to mention this half marathon, I'm quite certain I'll survive. It has just come at a terribly inconvenient time. Nevertheless.....I dug out the running shoes, shades, iPod, gu, water bottle, sports watch, I.T. band, and all the other stuff to pound the pavement ( not to mentions these 42 yr. old knees) in search of "The High" and when I experience it, it will motivate me day after day to escape into the zone only attainable by running!
