Today’s discussion is inspired by my pajama shirt that I was staring at as I was brushing my teeth last night while getting ready for bed.
How long did it take you to fall in love with running and what is it that you really love about it?
I started running when I was 12 with my sister and I definitely remember it being extremely hard for a long time. I was off and on with running during my teenage years and college and each time that I came back to running it would always take me a month or two to really fall in love with it again. After we have been running for a long time we forget about how difficult it is in the beginning. Your muscles fatigue quickly, your lungs may feel like they are going to explode and you question why you are out there running. For me, I think I really started to love running once I could run 5 miles comfortably. By then my body was pretty used to running and it started to crave the movement of running. As I built upon that base and saw more and more improvements I fell more in love with the sport. So, if you are wanting to fall in love with running and haven’t yet… just give it a little bit more time:)
It isn’t that I necessarily love every step of the run (especially on days that I am tired and sore) but what I really love is the post-run feeling. The feeling of accomplishment. Feeling strong and when my body is pumped up with endorphins. Knowing that I am doing something good for my body and pushing myself to a new limit. That is what I really love about running.
Just some fine dining at the splash pad. I could eat my bacon, avocado and turkey salad daily for lunch.
Yesterday’s project that we spent most of the day on was operation trampoline.
I can now assemble an entire trampoline. Let me know if you need me to come over and help you out when you buy a trampoline.
Brooke was pretty pleased with the final product.
And the rest of the afternoon was spent either jumping or petting this sweet pup.
For dinner we had my 4 favorite things—> homemade lasagna, broccoli, grapes and garlic bread. It doesn’t get much better folks.
Afterwards we went to my neighborhood’s yearly tradition of fireworks and food. I have been going to this since I was 10.
And I had some sugar yesterday in the form of whipped cream. I struggle.
How long did it take you to fall in love with running and what is it that you really love about it? Do you love it?

What is a meal that you could have daily for lunch?
