1. I am so thankful for Laura putting this challenge together! While I didn’t always get my time submitted by the deadline, it feels good to actually finish and follow through with a commitment – something I am terrible at.
Since it was National Running Day, my friend took it upon herself to create a meetup. Smart cookie, that one. She was even sweet enough to come get me since Mr. Running It had my car at the gym and was off lifting heavy things and putting them down. It was a little chilly out, but nothing a couple of miles wouldn’t take care of. We even had a group of ladies join us that found the meetup. Seriously, what a perfect way to spend the “holiday” than sharing the run love, right?
It made for the perfect little run to shake off the rest of this weekend’s mess.
2. Good thing I’m over it because I finally checked out the race photos, knowing I wasn’t on the lookout for photographers on the course like I usually do.
I laughed. A lot. There is nothing good to be said about this one other than I’m still upright (mostly) and still moving forward. Don’t quit. I’ll take that. Is it weird this is the only race photo I actually want to buy? That’s progress, right?
3. Finally, there is this. It’s a pretty penny for sure, and it’s about a month away from my goal race. Financially, it would not be worth it to run the half marathon. I would love to run the full again just to see what progress I’ve made in the past year and it would be a great marathon runniversary, not to mention, how long can I milk the big 4-0 celebration races? Last year it took me about a month to recover from running it, so I don’t know that I would be working against myself to give it my all for a sub2. It is, however, the 10th anniversary, so I expect some extra fun tucked into the weekend, and there are some peeps in the Bay Area I would love to connect with again.
What would you do? Tell me something random.
