Yesterday I had such a good run! After work I went home to change (I had packed a gym bag but forgot headphones and didn’t feel like running without them) and then headed to the gym. I had a great 5 mile run. It wasn’t incredibly fast, but I felt strong and capable. It was a great feeling!
Today is National Running Day!!! That just makes me so incredibly happy! I think we should all celebrate but…umm…well…running! I have a speed workout of 10 x 400 at a 5k pace today. Second to last speed workout before the race! Hope it makes me extra speedy!
I created the badge above at nationalrunningday.org. You should totally go make your own! For me, running is all about beating myself. It’s about overcoming my mind wanting me to stop, it’s about making my legs go just a little bit farther, it’s about setting new PRs and achieving new goals. Because I thinks sometimes we can be our own worst enemy when it comes to working out, I made my badge say “I’m stronger than I think I am”.
Today this cute sister of mine graduates from high school, so I’ll be going into work for a couple of hours and then heading home to see her and the rest of my family. Can’t wait!! Also, can’t believe that in a few short hours, we’ll no longer have kids in high school in our family. In a few short months when the little one goes off to college, our parents will also be empty nesters. Crazy how quickly time goes by!
Isn’t she cute?! I just think she’s great. Can’t wait to cheer obnoxiously loud as she walks across the stage!!!
Complete the phrase “I run…..”
How are you celebrating National Running Day?
When was the last time you went to a high school graduation? college graduation?
