Do you run?

Do you run?  Have you ever ran?  When I was in my 20's a did some running and I remember it felt great.  I was also skinny- not the bad skinny, but the fit into skinny-jeans skinny.  Shopping for clothes was a pleasure.

But that was a long time ago and since then I got married and had two children.  I don't buy skinny jeans and shopping for clothes is a bit of a chore.  Things wiggle that should not and I don't feel as "solidified" as I once did.

Still.  I got inspired by some of my co-workers who are runners.  They come into the office in running tights that show no bulges, no jiggly stuff.  I admire it.  They are moms and they aren't in their 20's.  I thought, hmmm...can I run too?  Is this even possible?

I decided I will try to run.  The last time I ran was after my 4-year-old at the mall.  This time I was on a treadmill at the gym.  I cranked the speed up to 5.2 and began running.  It felt awful, everything was loose, jiggly and my knee hurt.  

I ran just 1 minute.  1 minute!  I felt exhausted and was in pain.  I resumed walking on a slight incline.

I minute and I was done!  Tomorrow I am going to try 2 minutes.  Yep, 2 minutes!
