Can I call myself a runner?

So I bought this Fitbit a week ago to help motivate me to get moving and it seems to be working.

Let me say real quick and that with my mom in the rehab center it was hard to get anything done after school. I would spend some much time with her that when I had free time I just wanted to lay on the couch. I did feel the need to run, but I pushed it to the back of my mind.

Well now that mom is home (and doing great by the way) I need to get my butt in gear. I have been working out twice a week with a trainer. Last week I ran three days and this week I am planning to do the same.

It is like a switch went off in my brain.

I cannot wait to get to the gym and run. I love how I feel, physically and mentally, afterwards. It is the only time that I feel my brain really relaxes and stops overthinking. I put on some great music and run.

Run Samantha! Run!!!!

Now I am realistic. I have only kept this up for a week and things may change. But I am going to enjoy this change while I can. I will continue to read my running blogs, drool over running gear, and find the strength and bravery to sign up for the 5K in Vegas that I really want to do!!!

And I will run the whole damn thing!!!!!!!!!
