Mike and I woke up early to run in the morning before he had to go to work (I am lucky enough to be off work right now so I got back in bed and read for a bit).
Running is such an important part of our life; it has brought so many adventures, memories and people into our life and has provided us with an outlet to set goals and achieve those goals. Not every moment while running is "happy" but I am happy and thankful that I am physically able to run.
I thought I would celebrate the day with a few of my favorite moments that wouldn't have been possible if we didn't start running a little over four years ago (coincidentally today is also our triathlon-iversary, we raced our first sprint triathlon three years ago).
Finishing my first 50K with a smile on my face
Becoming an Ironman
Running on trails with friends
Finding my true best friend
Supporting others during their victory laps
Internet friends who become in real life friends
Running my hometown marathon with two friends by my side
Running with Mike
Crazy race faces
Isaac pacing me during a race, not once but twice
There are so many other moments that have happened over the past four years. It is amazing to think of all that we have done, seen and accomplished because of running.
I give running two thumbs up!
