I am very honored to have my essay - Why I Run featured in 'Another Mother Runner' blog. I am a huge fan of this blog and have been following it since the beginning of my journey. I also read the book that the bloggers Dimity McDowell and Sarah Bowen Shea penned, Run Like a Mother on the plane to the San Diego marathon.
These women rock! They are very accessible and supportive to the running community and are contributors to Runner's magazine.
Anyway, it just filled me with such a good feeling to see that they thought my little 'ol journey was interesting enough to share with their community and I'm extremely appreciative and humbled. If you get a chance and feel like reading it click the link above.
In other news, I got to fit in a four mile run today (treadmill) but it was a tough run for some reason. I was pretty fatigued by 2.5 miles in and my music seemed stale and it was feeling like the longest run ever. However, I couldn't come up with a good enough excuse to quit the run so I just kept going. I gave myself permission to run slower if I had to (walk even) but under no circumstance would I not get to four miles. I stuck it out and got there. I'm happy about that.
|From I <3 to run - thought this was so true!|
Hope you are all gearing up for a fantastic holiday weekend.
