Second Wind

I have been running almost every night for almost two weeks now. I can now run 800 meters! Yay! I know it’s nothing to most people, but friends, both old and new, know that it was never easy for me to run. 

The first time I ran, I only finished 400 meters. Halfway through, I was already out of breath, but remembering what my best friend (number 2) used to say to me when I got tired during warm up for our taekwondo lesson, “Wait for the second wind! Wait for the second wind!” That was so twenty years ago, yet I can never forget the many times he reminded me of the “second wind.”

I think no matter what we do, we always have to wait for the second wind and not just give up.  I have to remind myself of this when I get tired of working on something (which is what I’m going through right now.) 

As for running, I told my husband perhaps we should aim for joining a 5K race next year! He thinks it’s too ambitious of me, but hey, I can TRY, right? 

Here’s hoping you get your second wind, if you’re tired of doing something these days.
