I'M A RUNNER...
....because I love the way it makes me feel.
....because running shows me what my body is capable of.
....because I feel free.
....because running makes me happy.
....because I'm insane in my membrane.
....because I am strong.
....because I just adore hearing my thighs clap.
....because it's free therapy.
....because I love to eat.
....because I want to inspire
....because I like to challenge myself.
....because I want to be fierce.
....because I am a bombshell.
....because I believe in redefining my impossible!
Why are you a runner?
“You pretended the snooze button didn’t exist. You dragged your butt out of bed while others slept. While others ate their pancakes you had a feast of protein, glucose and electrolytes. You double-knotted. You left the porch light on and locked the door behind you. You ran 5Ks, 10Ks, 26.2 miles. Some days more, some days less. You rewarded a long run with a short run. And a short run with a long run. Rain tried to slow you. Sun tried to microwave you. Snow made you feel like a warrior. You cramped. You bonked. You paid no mind to comfort. On weekends. On holidays. You made excuses to keep going. Questioned yourself. Played mind games. Put your heart before your knees. Listened to your breathing. Sweat sunscreen into your eyes. Worked on your farmer’s tan. You hit the wall. You went through it. You decided to be man about it. You decided to be woman about it. Finished what you started. Proved what you were made of. Just kept putting mile after mile on your interval odometer. For 25 years, you ran. And we ran with you. How much farther will we go? As far as you will.”
Will you be running today?
Unfortunately I won't. No cardio remember. No running.
