I haven't shared with many that I had a goal to run a half marathon in Salt Lake City this year but I did. Well, my foot and ankle doctor advised me at my appointment the other day that it would be wise for me to stop running or else I would most likely end up in surgery. It actually didn't come as a hard blow. Everything he discussed with me seemed to be coming or I already knew yet it is still sad. For those of you who are runners or enjoy running you will understand. There is just something about it that is so appealing. I usually went early in the morning and would love to watch the sunrise and smell the fresh air from the sprinklers, (or bubbler systems our here in Vegas), being on all while getting a good workout. Now I want to get a bike soon and start a new form of excercise. There is just something about being outdoors when you workout. Could it be the feeling of being one with nature. A little sappy? Yes, but I know some of you must feel the same. So, I'm in the market now for a street bicycle. Preferably one that is red and shiny that will take me back to the days I first learned how to ride a bike. Minus the banana seat. I might be hanging up my running shoes but I could never stay away from staying active outside somehow.
