Happy Sunday night!
For those of us not watching the Bachelorette, I hope you are enjoying your wine and Sunday meals.
I am pretty excited to say that I ran 8.5 miles this weekend! Something I haven’t done in a WHILE! It felt great to just go. Like my grateful 3.5 miles before, my mind kind of moved forward recapping on why I love running.
I think that running is something anyone can do. Seriously. Every time I say it, the person rolls their eyes and say I’ll never be able to do that. It’s hard to make that step (I can remember the first time I went out for a “run”) but I remember this and why I love running today.
Why I love running:
- The running community – so friendly and “no judgement zones”
- You really get to see the “outside” (I cannot tell you how many times I take advantage of this)
- You achieve a goal every time. Just getting up and going is a good goal to achieve!
- You can always be better
- You can be you. (It’s your time to be you!)
To recap on my weekend runs…I definitely STRUGGLED on my Saturday run. I decided the smart idea was to go out in the middle of the afternoon to run. Luckily, I took my water bottle and used it more on my head then as a drink. Today’s run was HOT but both were finished, and I feel great about it. Goes to show that running can help make a day GREAT.
Have a good week everyone, remember that each day is a gift so use it to your advantage.
