It's the lake at the Disneyland Paris theme park. Let me say that again: I RAN AT DISNEYLAND PARIS. Dare I say it ... have I become *GASP* a runner? I think when you make time to run when you're at a theme park in France, you can't avoid calling yourself a runner any longer. And that's what I have been doing: avoiding labeling myself as a runner LIKE THE PLAGUE. I think part of me is still terrified that I will fail at it somehow--stop running, or not be as good as I would like--but I also think part of me knew that if I call myself a runner, there's no turning back. It's something that you ARE, and something that is a part of you. And I guess I'm not afraid anymore to commit myself to that way of life. Yes, running is hard, but it really does make me feel good after I've finished.
So, I guess I should say ... JE SUIS UNE JOGGEUSE!
Distance: 2.25 miles
