I going to have just a little vent post here for a minute. If I hear anyone ever say those words, shit is going down!
Just a half? Really people… Have you in your entire life ever ran 13.1 miles…??? Hmmmmm
Right then, back off. I currently have no interest at the moment to run a full, why? I am not ready! Simple , and I love running half marathons. Does this make me less of a runner? I sure hope not. I sacrifice the same things as all other runners, “sorry kids but we will go out after mommy does her training run” ” no I can’t spend the weekend partying, I’m training” etc. I give up things for training but in the end, I gain so much more.
I am a winner each and every time I cross that finish line – PR or not. I set out to accomplish a goal and I did. I have yet to DNF a race and have no intentions of every doing so. I will crawl or roll across that line!
So I applaud all you runners , ultras to fulls to Spartans – whatever , we are all in a special class of people.. We are runners, each and everyone of us.
So today I take my girls out for a nature hike and then this evening I will run. It makes sense to schedule this into your life. I am training extra hard for my upcoming Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon in October and the Rock n Roll Las Vegas in November, because I want more pics like this
RUNNING HAPPY – throwing rock star hand signs and owning that Half Marathon!
Thank you for listening to my vent and all you runners inspire me, regardless of distance!
Love you all!
