Two things first, two of my blogging friends ran PRs today at their 5Ks!
I'm sure they will post something about their runs on their blog.
We had some guests at the house last night.
We got to talking.
And I am definitely a runner because that's all I talked about.
My experiences/trips were running-related.
I went to New Orleans to run a half marathon. I went to bed early and got up at 3ish to get ready to run.
Then we ate and left. There was no mention of gay bars or Bourbon Street or drinking Hurricanes.
I went to Fayetteville to run. It's a nice town in Arkansas. It's hilly and the scenery was so pretty.
Perfect for a run.
I drank beer during my runs!
I wanna go to Vegas to run down the Strip!
That would be a quite an experience.
One of the husbands asked if I run a marathon.
I said, "No no. Just a half."
After saying that, I realized what I said.
Just a half? I'm pretty impressive!
I got to thinking last night.
For about 30 years, I'm just Christina - the girl from Singapore/the Asian-looking girl.
I don't really have hobbies or activities I love to do - other than cooking and eating.
But cooking and eating do not define me.
Now at 31, I am proud to say "I'm a runner."
Running is MY definition.
And a definition I am proud of.
What's YOUR definition?
