So this is a silly post, but I was going back through my running log the other day and I appears as though today is my one year run-iversary. Well not my run-iversary per say, but it is for when I started actually tracking what I was doing. One year ago today, I decided to change my life. And boy oh boy has it changed…. entirely! I went from barely being able to run 1/2 mile to my longest run to date of 18 miles. I now run in the snow, the rain, the blazing heat and the deepest dark of the early morning.
But more than that ….. I now run for me. My mantra is always that it’s cheaper than therapy. When I get out there and pound the pavement, whether it’s alone or with other people, I feel a sense of clarity, accomplishment and peace that I’m unable to achieve otherwise. I run because I’m important and I owe it to myself to be the best person, mom and wife that I can be. I run because I can…………… Happy Run-iversary!
