It begins with one step

Sydney Running Festival There was a time not so long ago when I used to love to run.  I got a little obsessive about it.  If I didn’t go for a run at least four times a week, I would start to get restless.  I would plan my social life around it.  Then one day, I just stopped.  I’m not sure why, I just did. 

Since I’ve moved back to Sydney, I have started to run again. Not anywhere near as often or as fast. But I have started.  And today I ran and finished the 9 km bridge run as part of the Sydney Running Festival.  Not quite a marathon, but it was a start and wow, what an amazing experience.  Being one of 32,000 participants on such a gorgeous day against such a spectacular backdrop was a pretty inspiring and memorable moment.

If any of you have been toying with the idea of starting something new, or just rekindling an old passion, all I can say is get out there and do it.  The hardest step is the first, after which there’s no looking back.
