Feeling Strong!

Running makes me feel strong.  When I have a good run, I feel strong the rest of the day.  Strong is about the best word I can use to describe it.  Sore, but strong.  I signed up again for the CarmelFest 4.5 miles.  I feel like I am where I was at when I ran it last year.  And that was a disaster.  I am trying to feel more confident and the weather looks better for this run.  Last Monday morning, I signed up for the run.  Then at lunch, I didn't get the good treadmill and had a terrible run.  I only ran 3.3 miles, not my usual 4.5 miles.  Wednesday wasn't any better.  I forced myself to run 4 miles.  I wanted to redeem myself Friday but forgot my running clothes.  Sometimes a lunchtime walk does as much good as a good run.  Only 4 more days until the big CarmelFest run.  Today I got the magic treadmill.  And the magic was there.  I ran 4.55 miles in 38 minutes.  I have confident once again that I can run 40 minutes on Thursday.  And if not, at least I will have run 4.5 miles.  This afternoon, I felt strong.  I like to feel strong.  It's a good feeling.
