We all have to celebrate National Running Day somehow today…whether it be going on a run or reading about running or talking about running or eating something delicious to fuel your run… just do something to celebrate this thing that we love (and hate sometimes;)
Brooke and I had a graduation to attend last night. One of my really good friend’s daughter finished up high school.
Brooke was in heaven because she got to clap and cheer for hours on end when the graduates names were called.
Enter in Starbursts. If the pink ones aren’t your favorite flavor I don’t think we can be friends.
Yep, I really like her.
After the graduation Billy was still working so I became the 5th wheel (and Brooke was the 6th) to go get Pho with friends.
My bowl of flank steak and veggies was absolutely perfect. Don’t let the chopsticks deceive you, I used a fork.
For National Running Day I thought it would be fun if we all shared our very favorite memory of running.
One of my favorite running memories: The last .1 mile of my very first marathon. I think I was closing my eyes to try and savor it or something.
Before I ran my first marathon I honestly was worried about even being able to finish it. I did all of my training on a treadmill and the most I had done during training was 22 miles so I was terrified I wouldn’t be strong enough to finish. Running a marathon had always been a huge goal for me so I went for it (even though I didn’t know anything about running a marathon like the fact that you shouldn’t wear brand new shoes for the race and I had no idea why people were eating during the race ha).
I just remember turning the corner and running down the Gateway mall to the finish line and I was in complete shock that I was going to finish.
