My body, it seems, has also adjusted to this new running routine. Gone are the extra hunger pangs, water retention, thunder thighs and bloated stomach. It’s a myth that running makes one lose weight–not that that’s my aim. I still make sure I eat heartily and do some weight lifting. This is to make sure all the running doesn’t leave me all skeletal and skinny.
I promised myself that this weekend I will run outdoors. Oh green green grass, here I come.
This is an entry into the running journal I have created to chronicle my experiences as I train and prepare to run the TCS New York City Marathon 2015 and fund raise for Team for Kids, an international running group that is committed to supporting health and fitness programs for underprivileged children in the US and Africa. Read my introduction entry where I share how this journey started, and if you would like to donate to the cause, simply go to my secure fundraising page here!
