During my school days, I thought I was way too cool for doing sports. A red face, sweat and a fast racing heart were no-go's for me. Looking back, it's first of all a great mystery how I could remain my body weight and second how much I have changed. Exercising has become a big part of my life, a part a really enjoy.
Even that much I couldn't resist taking my sport clothes on a trip to the beach. There was a storm coming (read: wind guts to 132 km/h) and it was freezing but it ended up being a beautiful run where we had the beach all to ourselves.
Boyfriend had enough with shorts and a sweater. I on the other hand wore a long sleeve shirt, a fleece and windproof jacket, windproof running tights and my new Nike Free 5.0 shoes (c/o JD Sports). I yielded to the comfort of the Free Runs 3.0 a long time ago. But for running outdoors I felt that I needed a little bit more support. There comes the 5.0 in: they are so fantastically supportive, yet still offers a barefoot-like feel.
There's no better way to test how far you've come than to just do whatever you never thought to be possible years ago. I couldn't run for a minute back then, now it feels like nothing can stop me.
