Here's the thing... I played sports most of my life. In high school I played volleyball and basketball and we required to lift weights twice a week. Even though I didn't enjoy running, when someone told me to do it, I knew I had to do it. So I did. As soon as my last season of basketball was over, I was done. I was done with sports, with running, with lifting weights, with sweating. DONE. Occasionally my darling sister Leanne would try to convince me to go to the gym with her and I would whine and complain (sorry love!) or most often, just not go. When we moved to Austin we made a conscious effort to at least go for a walk in the evening when it was cooler which I still try to do now after dinner, but it really isn't enough. Considering how much I sit at my desk at work and on my days off when I'm blogging (like right now) I should be doing more! I think it would be better if I had something chasing me, like a tiger! Well, maybe not a tiger because I'm not that fast. Perhaps an older tiger that's missing an eye and has a limp, I think I could outrun that. I just can't see what motivates people to run!
I do have to say however, that I feel much more energized today and hopefully I can make this part of my morning routine.

P.S. What music do you listen to when you run? I have not yet perfected my exercise playlist and I think it would definitely help!
