So, apart from having style related resolutions, every year I secretly write down a few that have to do with health. You know, try a green smoothie every now and then, avoid the pizza section in my supermarket…
One of them is to run at least twice a week – yes these shoes are also used for what they are meant to be used for. Not very original, since the Amsterdam Vondelpark is always extra crowded in January, when everyone tries to run off those extra Christmas/NYE pounds. Back in the days (read: 1,5 year ago), when I could barely make it to the first bus stop, I used to come up with all kinds of excuses just to not have to put on that running suit. I always had all kinds of other things to do, had deadlines to finish and when I got lucky it was raining (if that is even an excuse). Now that I am completely decked out in this Nike winter gear, there is not more excuses. “Unless you need to vomit, faint or die, keep on going.” Right?
What I am starting to like (love is too big of a word to be used here) about running is that apart from keeping me fit, it also helps me clear my mind. And it only takes about 30 minutes to run a proper amount of km.
