Am I a runner or weight lifter?

I have been going through this in my head lately….should I focus on running or weightlifting? The thing is I really like both. My daddy is really into running and wants me to try and run for the college I am transferring to next year. I do love running but I don’t think I could do it everyday. Let alone 6-10 miles everyday. Currently I only run that much once or twice a week. I do run shorter distances more. I am pretty good at running also and my times help prove that. I also have a gold of running a half marathon or even a full one. Now, on to lifting. I love to lift. I love getting toned and feeling strong. I love being the only girl in my college weight room. But, that said I can not just do lifting. I have to do cardio with it. This is something I am struggling with right now. If I want better results I know I have to do less cardio and more weights. I need to find a balance somehow because I am not ready to focus on one or the other.
