Been burned?

Have you ever thought about the word BURN? I mean there are so many meanings. You can BURN your dinner, you can be sunBURNED, you can be BURNED by a friend or loved one who broke your trust.

There are lots of things that can be BURNED: wood, matches, newspaper etc.

I learned today what the true meaning of BURN is.

The feeling I get when I am running. My lungs, butt and thighs are competing for 1st place in the "What is BURNING like fire inside my body" award. Just when I think it can't get any worse, it cranks up a notch and I feel like death is near.

This is where good runners tell you to push through the pain right? For the love, I was pushing and pushing and know what I felt...

MORE BURNING

Shocking right? The more you run the more your lungs and muscles feel like they are ablaze.

I am not a runner. I would like to be. I would like to be one of the skinny perky people who say "I love running." Give it up runners...you can't possibly love to run. I'm not buying it.

Since last year I have lost a little over 48 pounds. I'm happy with that, but I have 9 more to go to be at my first married weight. So....I am running. My goal is to hit that fabulous 9 pounds less than I am number by May 13th. Just in time for my sisters wedding...

But for now, until those 9 pounds are gone, we must have the BURNING. There's just gotta be a better way ;)

Just keep pushing through that pain! :) It feels good when you're done right? It's like giving birth, you forget about the pain by the next time...

You are such an inspiration! Keep at it and the burn will only come if you run faster or run longer. Feel the burn!
