Well done Elizabeth .

Lots of people start out not liking the sweaty, out of breath, out of shape feeling that exercises causes. But when folks stick with it, most find that the sensation of working your body gets addictive. It still requires a little will power to get going from time to time. I hope with time you, too, will grow to enjoy the immediate and long lasting benefits.

Today was a good day for a long run - 10 miles at a relatively slow pace. The red wine with dinner last night kind of caught up with me. But it felt great to push myself through it even though I would have happily lazed around the kitchen reading the paper and eating breakfast.
