National Running Day!


Today is the day that we all must run, like it or not!

Why you Ask??  Well Duh it's

National Running Day!

I will be hitting the pavement today after a 6 week break due to injury.  I have mixed emotions but know that I will be feeling awesome when I am done. 

I am starting from scratch,  I had really good intentions of cross training through this injury but it did not happen.  What can I say  I love to RUN!   And a little bit of feeling sorry for myself.  I have 3 half marathons planned, starting in September and ending in December. Training has officially started.  Slow and Steady!

I am going to leave you with a little bit of Why I Run:

I RUN...for the love of it, for sanity, for ice cream, to keep up with my kids, to be fast, for my health, to eat, to hurt, to find myself, to be happy, to be fit, to look darn good in my jeans, for wine, to stay young, because I can, for chocolate, to be outdoors, to sweat, for inspiration, so my butt does not grow, to rant, to get places, to feel the wind on my face, to feel skinny, to be a role model, to appreciate life...FOR MYSELF!


Why Do you Run?
 

If your going to Run, Run Half Crazy?

I was born to run, walking is so slow...

I always enjoyed running. I use to be pretty darn fast. It is ashame I didn't run in races back in the day.

Others say I run because I'm crazy or a stupid idiot :)

Maybe they are right but I am not going to stop.
