A Few Things I Love About Running
I'm feeling a need to write so I thought I would share a few things I love about running.
I love that my nine year old son talks to his friends about me being an Ultra Runner like its "really cool".
I love that my wife says she is not a runner; although she will run home from work (that's from Downtown Charleston, over the Cooper River Bridge and to Mount Pleasant), has run a ton of 5k's, has run several half marathons and has run a marathon.
I love being in better shape now than I was in my 20's and 30's.
I love that I have friends who will show up at 4:30am for a run even if its cold and raining (although, they will complain about it).
I love that I am 42 years old and my mother stills says she is proud of me for inspiring others.
I love that I can run at lunch.
I love that people let me coach them to run.
I love that my son likes to come to my running groups (one day on our way home he said, "I really like those people. I really like runners.").
I love seeing people I coach reach their goals (I like seeing people I don't coach reach their goals too, don't be so cynical) .
I love that I have co workers who run now.
I love that I can walk into a running store (TrySports) and they know my name and shoe size (okay that part's a little creepy, but you get what I'm saying).
I love that my son feels so comfortable at a race that he will get a massage just like any other runner.
I love that running is an adventure every time I go out the door.
And I love that there are like at least two people who read this blog (pretty sure its my mom and someone else, could be just my mom though)...
