Hello World!

Aloha kakou and welcome to my blog! So why blog about running? It's one of the simplest activities you could do, so what makes it so interesting? Au contraire...ever since I've started running, I realized how complicated it can be. Training schedules, nutrition plans, running form, types of gear, and the list goes on and on. But it's not what's complicated that I think makes running special, it's the simplicity. It's a paradox. You have to speed up to slow down.

As a society, I think we've become so fast paced that we never actually look at the world. It takes something simple like running to make you focus and truly appreciate your surroundings. Running is so inherently easy and mechanical. Put yourself on automatic and watch the leaves turn color, smell the salty lake, or better the back of the cute runner in front of you.

What else is there to do but watch the cute backside of the runner in front of you?? :) Especially if there are no other options due to height restrictions.
