I love to run. I do. I just don’t love to run in the cold so I have coined myself the “sometime runner” because I only run from February until October. Now is the time that I dust off my running shoes, and start eying new running gear because I’m about to take off.
One of my besties and I have agreed to run at least a race a month throughout the rest of the year together. First race is coming in March so I have to get back into gear and start training again. A part of getting back in the groove is stocking up on my running essentials to include bananas, protein shakes and POM.
I’m not a huge fan of water so I often pour my Pom into my water or I down a bottle after my run. Who after running 3 miles doesn’t want to taste a little flavor? I don’t know about anybody else but after a long trying run I long for something with some taste and I like the light and refreshing taste of Pom.
As I’m starting to figure out how I’m going to fit running back into my busy schedule I know it’s not an option so I’m not sure if it will be mornings, evening or a mixture of both that changes from week to week but I do know that I am excited about my impending running season….as if I am some sort of athlete coming off sabbatical.
I do know that the hardest step is the one out of the door.

I am a fairly new runner. I started last year. There’s a 5K coming up in April that I want to do so I’ve been training for that. My goal is to run 3 times a week and so far I have been sticking to it. When it’s cold I do the treadmill at the gym. It’s not my favorite way to run but I do like being able to watch tv and workout at the same time. It’ll be super hot here by the end of the month and I’ll be back outside soon enough. I haven’t tried POM Wonderful yet. I’m always willing to try something new if it’s good for you.

I’m shooting for 3 as well. I’m not going to put pressure on myself realizing that my schedule now is more busier than it has ever been so I have to roll with the punches and get it in when I can. I hope that method won’t make me feel bad about not making specified dates by not setting the expectation but just getting it in when I can.

For some reason, I’ve never tried POM. Hmmm… I need to get on that. I always hear that people love it.
I love those kicks, by the way.

I love POM. Haven’t had any in awhile. And I can’t wait to get back to running. I’m the opposite of you. I prefer to run in the cold so long as it’s not single digits. The heat is what gets me off my A game. But I am getting back to it as soon as the doctor approves it. Let’s race together.
