My first post

This is my first post. It won't be the best post I do, but I'm sure it won't be the worst. I just finished my second to last college course today. YAY! It was the hardest course I think I have ever taken. Who would've thought that meteorology was that difficult. But it's done, I got a C, which really ticks me off, but I worked my butt off, so I have to deal with it. One more class and I will have my Bachelor's degree, I cannot wait.

But that's not what my blog is about. It is about the challenges and successes I face while I try to be a "runner". I love running, but at the same time, I hate running. It takes me beyond my comfort zone. It challenges me, but yet if I don't run it makes me very cranky. Running releases all those good endorphins that destress me, so I know if I run, I will feel great. But yet, my mind and body fights it; they say I can't do it, and I need to prove them wrong. I know I can do it, but sometimes my mind overruns me and I give up and I don't run or exercise. It kills me because I know if I just suck it up and do it I am going to feel awesome. So why do I let my mind tell me "go back to sleep, you are tired" ? I need to force myself up, it is so worth it. People, I guarantee you, it is sooo worth it. Exercise makes you feel so awesome! Don't let your mind overrun your body's needs. You will feel better, I promise you! Now, if I could just convince myself :)
