Don’t hate me feet.
Or lungs for that matter!
Why do I make these requests whilst wrapped in Kinesio tape and neoprene?
Because it is officially running season.
My first race of the season was last Saturday. I ran with my friend Olivia in her first ever 5K. It was a tough run. I didn’t feel properly trained, stretched, or prepared. Not to mention the fact that my GPS device told me I had completed 3.1 miles about a half a mile too early (it was really tough to keep running after that misinformation!) But I don’t run to keep time or earn medals or beat the competition. I run to prove to myself that I can. I run as a picture of the race of life. Sometimes it is arduous, sometimes you want to quit, sometimes a voice tells you that you’re finished a half a mile too early.
Take a breath. Put one foot in front of another. Glance to your side and know that friends are running with you.
That’s why I run. That’s why I’m excited it is the start of running season.
Together we run for joy!
